Postcards to say BOO!
We’re back. How about some fleshtone to offset that logo?
Paul had a thing about women. Benedict and some of Rowan’s lot still do.
Postcards to say something 025: Eating The Red Words Last…
It’s all been said a lot of times, but apparently some skulls are too thick and need Applied Percussive Maintenance™.
Whether or not your list of uncleans, abominations and what have we applies to the modern christian or not, there is no call from any word of Jesus in your bible that any law or rule for believers should in any way be applied to unbelievers.
Does this make you look suspiciously at the motives of those who want to get into government and enforce universal compliance with “christian” rules? If I still believed in a Jesus who was other than a being of fable, I’d see him knotting up the ol’ Pharisee Whacker 5000™ for another round.
Still, carry on, lads! If you manage to make the whole world act godly, there won’t be any need for a god anyhow…
Postcards to say something: 010
An old friend, Anonymous Trad, sent me this. Like the lovely folk songs Mr Trad has been providing for a number of years now, the origin of this picture is shrouded in mystery.
As you look, observe the layers of meaning: an artist’s work is stolen and made into an image by people working to make an image, and somebody has come along and added yet another layer of meaning to the image.
And as for the big chairs? Takes a lot of chutzpah.
Jesus: It’s Not All About Free Speech!
It seems that Jesus is “all for free speech but” not when it comes to websites encouraging people to use reason instead of blind faith!
Our web host received this on the 5th of Feb:
Dear Nearly free speech,
I am writing in regards to your website www.jesusallaboutlife.com which was registered on the
30th January 2009.
I have contacted our lawyers and at this early stage they have advised us to request that you shut down this sight immediately due to copyright infringements and defacing our brand, please view our website www.jesusallaboutlife.com.au
We are all for free speech but hope you understand our position.
Once you have closed this sight can you please advise?
Thank you in advance.
Next time Jesus and his representatives want to try and shut us up, maybe they should actually read the Copyright Act 1968?
In particular, I recomend Section 41
Fair dealing for purpose of criticism or review
A fair dealing with a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, or with an adaptation of a literary, dramatic or musical work, does not constitute an infringement of the copyright in the work if it is for the purpose of criticism or review, whether of that work or of another work, and a sufficient acknowledgement of the work is made.
And Section 41 A:
Fair dealing for purpose of parody or satire
A fair dealing with a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, or with an adaptation of a literary, dramatic or musical work, does not constitute an infringement of the copyright in the work if it is for the purpose of parody or satire.
Just to be absolutely clear, this image is an adaptation for the purpose of parody or satire:
Have a nice day.
