God Manifests as an Elephant

image

I'm not sure if God sent a real elephant to get us to go to church, or if God Himself manifested as an elephant, or if the whole elephant thing is just a metaphor. But I do know that the next time I see an elephant, I will think of church.

Satanic Coloring Book

I've posted before about unusual coloring books, such as the E.F. Hutton Coloring Book and the Anti-Terrorism Coloring Book, so when a coloring book titled The Satanic Children's Big Book of Activities showed up in the news, it caught my eye.

A group called the Satanic Temple wants to hand out copies of this coloring book to children in Florida schools, arguing that Christian evangelical groups are allowed to distribute bibles and booklets in public schools, so why shouldn't they be allowed to distribute their satanic literature. Equal time for all religions, etc. Of course, there's no way in hell the school board is going to let this happen. [foxkc.com]

The Mark Of The Beast

.image
NewDealDesign, a design house out of San Francisco, is behind an idea for implanted tattoos that carry information about the wearer that could be exchanged by touch. The Bible has long been quoted about the mark of the beast and the Anti Christ being from the Middle East, guess where the CEO of the company is from, just sayin'.

Virgin Mary Barbie Doll

Created by Argentinian artists Pool Paolini and Marianela Perelli as part of a "Barbie, The Plastic Religion" exhibit. Their idea was that, "If there’s a Barbie doctor, a teacher and a police officer, why shouldn’t there be a Virgin of Luján Barbie?” So they've created 33 different Barbie and Ken dolls portraying various religious figures from Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam. Obviously controversy has ensued. More info: patheos.com, metro.co.uk

Beverly Massegee and Erick





image

Evangelical ventriloquism: I tend to suspect no one does it better than Beverly Massegee. (Ie, no one else does it at all.)

I could not find any clips of her and "Erick," so you'll have to content yourself with her "singing."

Fighting Ministers


Episcopal ministers participating in role-playing exercises in order to learn how to be more assertive and not always be "knuckling under to overbearing parish members." Here they're participating in the hostility exercise, acting out how an argumentative church group might behave. Source: Life - May 19, 1958
