Scary Zombie Jesus!

U crkvi Sv. Ivana u mjestu Broadbridge Heath (West Sussex, Engleska), velečasni Ewen Souter naredio je uklanjanje

Let the children come to me!

Broadbridge Heath's crucifix

raspela zbog straha i osjećaja neugodnosti koje ovo izaziva kod male djece i drugih vjernika. Ono što je zanimljivo u toj priči je činjenica da su sami vjernici izrazili želju da se gazdi kuće daje pedala, te da se njegov kip zamijeni običnim križem (bez atletičara) koji će biti prihvatljiviji. Kladim se da bi Mel Gibson dao koljeno za taj rashodovani križ koji izgleda kao da ga je dizajnirao deprimirani Tim Burton nakon višestrukog slušanja diskografije grupe My Dying Bride.:mrgreen:

The Reverend Ewen Souter said the 10ft crucifix was “a horrifying depiction of pain and suffering” which was also “putting people off . (…) Children have commented on how scary they find it and how off-putting they find it as a symbol outside the church. As a key exterior symbol for us it was putting people off rather than having a sense of hope and life and the power of the resurrection.

A sad pazite kada su odlučili maknuti taj sporni križ:

It was removed from the church just before Christmas and will be mounted on a large wall in the grounds of Horsham Museum.

Khm, pomalo je paradoksalno to da žitelji Broadbrige Heatha slave Isusov rođendan na takav način da prije recitiranja molitivi i općeg tulumarenja izbace kip slavljenika jer je ovaj lagano spooky.😉

Anyway, možda bi ove uznemirene  vjernike trebalo podsjetiti da je strah jedan od glavnih čimbenika religije koju toliko vole i (po)štuju. Da ne duljim, samo da citiram nezaboravnog Georgea Carlina:

Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man – living in the sky – who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time….But he loves you!
