Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

Who's GoD is it AnywaY



The Death of God Exhibit opens..but we ALL know which God will be portrayed now don't we?

Muuuuuhammad is alive and well in this latest exhibit by a controversial British artist.
But crucifixes and rosaries aren't faring as well..

"The show, the result of Hirst's three-month stay in Mexico, includes human skeletons, animals preserved in formaldehyde and skinned lambs, propped up as if praying or splayed upon crucifixes. One work shows a lamb kneeling inside a crystal container, looking as if it is carrying a white-covered Bible and red rosary between its legs."

And for the quote of the day:
"They are in effect, very strong works, but our intention is not to provoke but to invite to reflection, to the discussion of ideas, and I think Hirst achieves that with impeccable quality," said Hilario Galguera, who owns the gallery. "I don't think they are provocative pieces simply to provoke, that would be very easy."

Human skeletons propped up and praying...splayed upon crucifixes..?
animals with Bibles and rosaries between their legs?...


and his intention is not to provoke?
How bout this catchy title then: "The Death of God" ....

"This government is very Catholic and when certain very reactionary people find out and see the works, they're going to make a fuss," Caballero said. "But that will be a good thing in the end because it will make more people be interested and come and see other ways to make art."

Oh...no fatwahzzzzzz on his head eh?..Because he is only insulting and degrading and blaspheming Christianity eh?
I will not insult your intelligence, dear readers by bringing some glaringly obvious points to light.

Will the press shy away from reproducing these images so as not to offend Christians?

Yahoo News Photos
has already prepared the slide show!

A man looks at a bull's heart pierced with needles in a formaldehyde solution, a piece by british artist Damien Hirst called 'The Sacred Heart of Jesus'..

'Adam and Eve Under the Table'

'The Body of Christ' consisting of 500mg paracetamol tablets and bull's blood'

'In the name of the father' consisting of sheep crucified and suspended in formaldehyde'

'Our Father who Art in Heaven' consisting of a sheep in formaldehyde with a rosary and a prayer book'



But fret not, because they are expecting people to ahem..."make a fuss".
What exactly constitutes "a fuss"?

    What constitutes a fuss? If you're Christian, a fuss is not wanting your tax dollar to finance this sort of garbage. If you're Muslim, it means burning down embassies and killing people over material that is vastly less offensive.

    How absolutely disgusting! That's not art.

    And what blatant hypocrisy on the MSM and Left's part. I'm sure they will celebrate this as great art.

    so GOD is taking another hit from his creations. When will we ever learn!!!Good luck to the newest attempt at attention grabbing for oneself. I have a strong feeling HE will make it thru this one too.

    Same old story and it gets tiresome. The left and MSM run like whipped dogs when the ugly radical Muslims riot and threaten. But, they glory in defaming Christians. Why, because our Teacher said turn the other cheek. We do and the pack of whipped dogs attack us, and, not having faith, they know not the judgment they bring upon themselves. Perhaps I will grow to be a good enough Christian to forgive them and their radical Muslim allies.

    Unlike Mohammed, God Almigty needs no help defending Himself; He is quite capable of that on his own!

    Since when is a dead animal in a jar art?

    It's not only disgusting; it's also blasphemous. There are websites (as you know) making fun of Christians and Christianity as well. Deriding Christians has been going on for 2,000 years; you would think we'd be used to it by now. We should even expect it, I guess. After all, Jesus told us it would happen.

    It still gets under the very fabric of our sensibilities, doesn't it?!

    The removed post was me. Somehow I published the same comment twice.

    Ummm, no.

    I won't be burning down any buildings in protest, however.

    As Gayle said, Jesus told us it would happen.

    And being reviled for His sake brings blessings. We have His promise.

    The issue with God is who He is, but what we think of Him. It strongly believe we lost faith in God when the USA started all sorts of religeous idealologies. What I means it that we have been so wrapped up in our differences that we are really not putting real notice on God in the first place. The big issue here lately on should be pray in public shcool, the Ten Commandment, and the other things that people will make an issue out of is not addressing God at all.

    People go to psychiatry to solve the problems. They follow all sorts of health rituals that is on television. We go to all lengths to find happiness without understanding what we are finding in the first place. As we go in circles oround God Himself, we do not stop and see that the solution to our problems is what we are goirng around circles in the first place.

    A lot of times I find solutions things by first seeing if I am going circles around anything. Once I see that I am, I examine what that thing is about. Usually that thing is the answer to the problem, or an important key to it. There is two important things I have learned in life is the MISS and KISS methods:

    Make
    It
    Simple
    Stupid

    Keep
    It
    Simple
    Stupid

    These two stands out all confussion that may come our way. These two methods will not give us the answers, but they are the key to finding it. Life is too short to not play your cards right.

    If one does not want to believe in God, then that is their right and priviledge. If you do not believe it God, then do not tell me not to. Laws of the land in the USA are to serve and protect. They are not to tell others how to live and how to think. The Word of God does not tell us to turn right or left. We have the freedom to choose.


    Sky high, seek peace,
