Here, let me blaspheme and then say I’m not, mkay?

On the “Tom Joyner Show” on Wednesday, Rev. Al Sharpton spoke about the meaning of Easter:

“I think that the message is, no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how your crucified, nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.

The story of Jesus on the cross. No matter what they humiliated him with. No matter how they mocked him he took it, because he knew he could rise. And the story of Easter and my message for this Easter session is no matter what unearned suffering you go through, that if you know you can rise above it, don’t become like the diseases that you fight.

As I looked at President Obama at our convention last Friday where all he took he’s been able to rise politically again.. I’m not comparing him to Jesus, but I am saying that to every crucifixion there is a resurrection for those who believe…”

A burger chain in Seattle is creating a stir with a new promotional poster for Easter featuring Jesus smoking a joint and holding a sandwich.

The restaurant, Lunchbox Laboratory, riffed off Easter Sunday’s falling on April 20, or 4/20, which is also a pop-culture reference to cannabis consumption. The business has been using a 2-for-1 promotion for the past two years to advertise their “Burger of the Gods” signature dish.

“I’m not your moral guide in life, I’m selling burgers” Lunchbox Laboratory owner John Schmidt told ABC News affiliate KOMO-TV in Seattle. “It’s not an anti-Christian message, it’s a very peaceful message; Jesus enjoying a sandwich and a blunt.”

PETE’S PAGE; FRIDAY FUNDAY

Posted by Pistol Pete

My fishing partner and I haven’t gotten a line wet together for the last couple years. He works full time and has a mowing/snowplowing business on the side. After my hospitalization last year I determined to make use of what time I have left. We’re going on a shopping trip to Gander Mountain today to restock the ol’ tackle boxes with hooks,lures and all manner of gadget we’ll probably never use,but being manly men we gotta have  it. Like the power tools I never use(much). C’mon,don’t tell me women don’t have shopping fetishes too.

Culture Challenge of the Week: The Good in “Good Friday”

http://townhall.com/columnists/rebeccahagelin/2014/04/17/culture-challenge-of-the-week-the-good-in-good-friday-n1825579

 

Darkness fell across the land and the man they thought would be their savior cried out in a loud voice, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Soon after, he breathed his last.

The people standing at the foot of the cross beat their breasts and stumbled away. From a distance, his mother and friends watched in silent despair.

His disciples were broken in spirit—no doubt confused, hurting and angry. They had followed this man for years, left their work and their families for him. They thought he would change everything. But in the course of one day, all of their hopes were dashed.

They all felt the sting of betrayal when Judas brought the soldiers to the garden to arrest Jesus. Later, Peter anguished at the darkness of his own heart after he denied his closest friend. Their miracle-worker kept still as he was accused, remained silent as he was beaten, and carried his own cross. They heard the crowd mocking him, telling him to save himself, and his followers swelled with anticipation waiting to see him do it. Surely, he would. But instead, he gave up his spirit.

How many times have you felt the sting of betrayal in your own life? How long have you been haunted by your own conscience? How often are you consumed by bitter disappointment? How easily confused are you when things don’t go according to plan? Is there no justice in this world?

How are we ever to believe the promise in Romans that “all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose?” Does it really mean all things? Our own sin, injustice, even death itself?

The world has never seen a graver injustice than the death of Jesus. The only man who lived without sin of any kind was tortured and crucified. As the Prince of Peace suffered, the adversary rejoiced in his sickening, preverted understanding of victory.

Yet what seemed like victory for the powers of darkness, God used for the salvation of all mankind. What seemed like sure defeat was the greatest gain.
