This had me laughing, though it is not funny.Mel Gibsons new movie, "the passion", explores the last few hours of christ life, and though unfinished, has already started much contraversy.
Both christian, and jewish peoples have already protested against this portrayal.Then I read this...

Seems like someone else is protesting also eh?

being struck by lightning would be enough to make me walk away from it, although I don't think I would have been in this film....

Sometimes, I think, people look for deeper meanings when simpler ones will more than suffice. Carrying an umbrella onto a hill in a lightening storm might just be a habit someone would want to reconsider?

Lol, oh I agree, but the irony just got me rolling, of course God was not chucking bolts, but how ironic!

I am sitting on my hands here right now trust me   The man upstairs has been known to part seas, what makes you think he can't find a little joy in zapping someone who urks him?  I know I would. Now I thought that was really funny.

'Cause, were that true, Sharon, I'd expect to see a WHOLE LOT MORE thunderstorms than I do.

Ok..do you all know the guy who was zapped? My gosh he's cute! I think God zapped him as Her way to get his attention. Like saying 'Zap, how you doin'?'

Ever been to Vancouver?  There are tons of lightning and thunder storms here I will tell you, but she misses all the time (not a good shot I guess.)  Right on Sharon, I agree - it sure got my attention   (She says, grumbling, "No way am I taking my umbrella today that's for sure.)
