Ceiling Cat


Jewish date:  12 Ṭeveth 5770 (Parashath Wayḥi).

Today’s holidays:  Feast of Thomas Becket (Roman Catholicism), Feast Day of Molinos (Thelema).

Worthy cause of the day:  “Save America's Fisheries - The Petition Site”.

Today’s topic:  Not really much is new on the religious news front.  I have watched more religion-related movies recently, but The Passion of the Christ does nothing to excuse itself from my charge of anti-Semitism in the Gospels yesterday (besides having little of interest other than its attempt to use original languages and a lot of violence), and Pirates of the Caribbean:  At World’s End is so incomprehensible that I dare not say anything about its theology until I have a chance to watch it again.  I am therefore going straight to the religious humor and shall discuss the LOLcat god, Ceiling Cat.

I am not aware of a god ever reported as going on vacation.  This idea may be borrowed from Bruce Almighty, which has God letting a mortal who thinks he can do a better job run the show in Buffalo and the surrounding area for a while.

This does not work well with traditional ideas of deities either.  They are usually depicted as receiving our prayers without need for a visible messenger.  Yes, I am aware of depictions of angels carrying up prayers, but never any of them asking for a message.
