THIS is what I’m talking about with the religious bullshit invading Pinterest. I can’t stand it, it creeps me out. What sort of person identifies with this statement “I want someone who loves Jesus more than me.” ?? Sounds fucking cult-y to me. It’s a lot easier for me to be civil with religious people when I’m not reminded of the way they think.

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

"ooh!  a poor person in need of help!  i better make sure they get arrested!"  to me, that’s the issue that’s most troubling.  Apart from that, the statue, and the idea behind it, is one of the parts of Christianity that even a grouchy atheist like me has to admire…

I love this because I think it shows how today’s most “devout” Christians wouldn’t be the people that supported him if he existed today.
