You know, I've posted some weird shit to this blog, but I think I've reached a new level today with a painting of Jesus Being Circumcised:





From the Travel Blog. Apparently, since Jesus did get circumcised and it was one of those paintings people would order and put up on the wall, one of the questions during that time when everyone wanted a finger bone or piece of the true cross to keep them safe, was, "What really happened to the holy foreskin of Jesus Christ?"

Well, apparently it went round to a few Apostles and Romans then to the French, but no one knows where it is now. How shocking. As bizarre as this line of thinking is, there was some strange Saint who thought it materialised in front of her and she would taste it. As you do when the foreskin of Jesus materialises before you. And, take note, it was a tasty thing and she swallowed it right down (well, actually, it went down her throat by itself). But perhaps even weirder than that--I know, I find it difficult to believe and I'm typing this--is that Jesus' Mum, Mary, "carried Her son's severed foreskin with Her all her life like some precious treasure. That way, the legend went, she would have been able to again accept Christ on the Day of Judgment. The point was that Jesus would appear before God, His Father, both spiritually and physically intact. Hence, it was important that He be re-united with his severed prepuce!"

That's just some really weird shit and I hope it's all true..

When I first saw the halos, I thought you'd found a copy of Jesus Getting a Handjob from Peter.

Re: girls
Ask her if she's mad at you and why, and then continue the conversation from there. Now go and do not ask important advice from strangers again!

It looks like smoke is coming out of the mohel's ears. Maybe it was hard to get that little thing off?

And I watched them circumcise my son and Messiah or no, that picture should have some *serious* screaming and kicking.

the thing that really freaks me out is guys who convert and who aren't already circumcised... well, they've got to get it done. man. that'd be a big tick in the con column.

If I remember my cathecism correctly the whole debate over circumcision thing was the subject of the first Vatican Council. One sect said "All of our new Christians need to be circumcised!" One sect said "Dude, there isn't going to BE any new Christians if we make all these grown men hack the foreskin off their penises." (peni? whatever)

Circumcision has always been a huge deal, bigger of course in some cases than in others.

hee. :-)

There are apparently lots of churches (about a dozen) that all claim to have the relic of Christs foreskin. Either most of them are lieing, or he was a very remarkable man in ways that are not mentioned in the bible.
