‘… they are so unlike your Christ.’  — Mohandas Gandhi

On this, the ‘Holiest Day in the Christian Calendar’, I have a proposal for all  ‘Christians’.

If you don’t already have one, get yourself one of those ‘Red Letter Bibles’, the ones that have the words attributed to Jesus of Nazareth printed in red ink.

Jettison all the what-notery in the rest of the tome, and I don’t mean just the ‘begats’, which as a matter of fact, you can keep if you absolutely cannot part with them.

If you cannot do this, then please call yourself something other than ‘Christian’.

I myself continue to struggle with ‘The Risen Christ’, but I’m pretty much 100% on pixies.
