Jim’s Rant For The Day. Velvet Elvis Jesus.
Yesterday evening I saw a headline stating that CNN’s Don Lemon is calling for seizure of all pictures of a white Jesus. Just seeing the headline irked me. Here’s why.
My wife and I very much wanted a picture of Jesus in the home for both us and the younguns. But we knew we could never afford an original photograph as they are very rare today. So we tried to buy from a roadside vendor selling velvet Elvis type art. But with so many younguns to feed we could not afford his Jesus either.
The vendor did have a knockoff of the brother of Jesus however. The family resemblance was uncanny, except he was younger than Jesus. No guest in our home ever commented on a difference so we have been happy with it. But now they may come and seize what happiness we could afford.
I tell you who I really feel sorry for though. I feel for the wealthy person who purchased an original Jesus painted by Michelangelo himself. He’s really going to be pissed if they seize his.
