No kidding. "Jesus Nazareth" has added me as a friend. (I should add that, my Lutheran theological underpinnings aside, after finding out about his Facebook presence from another blog I sought him out and asked him to "friend" me. Potato, po-tah-to; we know what's really going on.)
Seriously: When I first read about this mysterious entity (whose profile can be found here , I suspected it might be the snarky work of a "cultured despiser of religion"; or some "soul-winning" fundamentalist with a particularly acute hubris problem; or an author gathering material for a quirky future bestseller; or just a merry prankster not terribly concerned about the ramifications of the Second Commandment.
But...I like this JC. He posts, and collects from friends, lovely Jesusian artwork. He has a rather droll sense of humor. He's a fan of, among other people and things, dogs, cats, babies, Notre Dame, Greenland, Stan Musial, "Family Guy," Yemen, Avril Lavigne and the Detroit Tigers. And I detect at least a hint of deeper theological stuff going on when he shares moments like "Jesus is brushing his teeth"..."Jesus is eating toast"..."Jesus is hiding with a family in Gaza"..."Jesus is walking with soldiers in Israel."
I gave Jesus a shout-out this morning and asked him to think of me today. He said he would.
