Today's Sermon

Lured by the prospect of bitching about stuff on a daily basis, Dave has decided to start his own blog: http://distresssignals.blogspot.com/ You should check it out.

It's too damn nice this weekend to spend any amount of time on the computer. Many leaves have been raked and more to follow. Watched Last Temptation of Christ last night -- though I was too young to see it when it came out, I do remember lots of fuss and controversy from the religious right. I was surprised since I thought the movie was a flattering account of Jesus. In the end, he decides that he will sacrifice himself -- he comes to realize that he's made a mistake. The movie actually shows Jesus as a conflicted human. I guess it makes complete sense that "evangelicals" would pooh pooh any movie that depicts Jesus or any other coveted religious figure as *thinking* for themselves & addressing serious theological issues. The right path is to blindly follow, isn't it?
