Ha! They would too. I lived in Topeka and they would protest a fire hydrant if it occurred to their glorious leader.

Scary, I almost thought you were going Westboro Baptist on us.

Does this mean I'm sinning if I eat Fig Newtons?

God actually "hates" the disease of the Fig, not the fig itself! And He hates it because it is destroying all the fruits...he hates the disease because he loves Figs.

You might have heard of Jon Stewart's and Stephen Colbert's marches on Washington. One of the signs there held by an attendee said plainly "God hates figs" with the Bible verse below (I saw it online on various reputable news sites).

s-p,

Go here:

and flip through the "Images from this Episode" until you see the one that you had on your blog awhile back.

You win some blog awards and the next thing you know you are setting the trends that NPR picks up on.

Och, I love "The Splendid Table". That's great... It makes you wonder if someone on the staff might be Orthodox. :)

GW, I heard of the marches, I don't watch TV or surf political stuff so I didn't see that. Maybe Kester did who I stole the line from and put it into a cartoon I stole from a Catholic website. Hmmm. Maybe I need to go to confession for this one. :)

I was at the Stewart/Colbert rally! I saw the "God Hates Figs" sign (with Bible citation underneath) with my own eyes. Sheer brilliance. There were SO MANY good signs there. Costumes too! (Colbert told people to dress up as their favorite fear...and it was right around Halloween.) It was a giant, packed-like-sardines street party.

Ooooh! I got a mention on your blog!

I've seen a post or four, and people have kept telling me that I need to read you regularly, but I hadn't made it a regular part of my reading rotation until I saw the Elder Paisios post. Now, I've read about four pages of archives and am hooked. I consider it a great honor that someone told me we think alike.

OK, have to get back to work ...
