"When Will Jesus Bring The Pork Chops?"

I don't believe we are beating a dead horse when we continue to place the counterpoint before the public eye. As the banner above this blog reads, we continually search for clarity and perspective. A Denver theater is hosting a play called "Jesus Hates Me" about a mother who runs a Bible-themed miniature golf course. Norman Lear just loves it. The new book by George Carlin (who ceased being funny decades ago) is titled "When Will Jesus Bring The Pork Chops?" in which he apparently compares people of faith to UFO believers and has a chapter entitled "The Continuing Story of Mary and Joseph." I'm certain many devout Christians would find much of this offensive, especially the cover art on Carlin's book depicting him seated at the Last Supper. The mark of modernity in a culture or civilization is not whether its people take offense with the expressions of others, but how they respond to that offense. Simply because much of the Muslim community refuses modernity is no reason for the rest of the world to play along. By the way, if you did not know or believe that this was mostly a contrived affair, read here and here.
