Daryl Finds PERFECT Power of Story in Prayer!

. . .from Pharyngula.

Favorite Daughter, our power of religion college student, is gonna love this one. 
Wonder if the (power of personality and Prada over policy) Republican running mate is familiar with Exodus 32, and would like to choose a side in this story?  (Talk about damned if you do and damned if you don’t!)

I’m tempted — not Biblically! — to post the art here as a teaser but I’ll be good — not Biblically! — and let you get the full impact for yourself, at the link.  😀

It’s really sad when you don’t even know your own myth. How many Hail Marys does it take to atone for this sort of thing?

Did you know this one, Nance? I do — not just from Sunday School but I bet I’ve seen that movie a dozen times since childhood. Power of story. The Old Testament made good movie fodder.

The New Testament OTOH made good musical theatre. Jesus Christ Superstar. But wait, we can’t forget Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. . . .that was Old too. Donny Osmond the Mormon!

I would think it would be common knowledge. But maybe only for us non-Christians? 🙂

Evangelical Christians would never say a Hail Mary, that is praying to the wrong invisible spirit in the sky.

I’m not Catholic or evangelical but I sure know a lot about Hail Marys — college football cult member.

It’s all about faith, isn’t it, JJ? 🙂

I was thinking more like heaven — and hell! 😀

I thought it was pretty common knowledge among us Christians that praying to idol, statues, etc., is a big no-no. That’s part of the issue other groups have with us Catholics praying the Hail Mary. But I guess a bull is okay! ;P

The idea of laying your hand on a statue of a bull and praying is just plain weird and creepy to me, but praying along with a set of rosary beads is okay in my eyes. I guess, as my parents would say, it takes all kinds!
