  1. Jesus can build a kingdom out of nothing but love and charity, but Chuck Norris can crucify him and take it.

  2. Chuck Norris doesn’t read the Bible. He stares the New Testament down until he gets the information he wants.

  3. Jesus may have been born to a virgin, but that”s nothing compared to Chuck Norris, who punched his way out of his mother’s womb, and shortly thereafter grew a beard.

  4. As we continue our discussion ::ahem::, I refer us to the Wikipedia article on kitsch. I especially am taken with Milan Kundera’s thoughts on the subject: “Kitsch causes two tears to flow in quick succession. The first tear says: How nice to see children running on the grass! The second tear says: How nice to be moved, together with all mankind, by children running on the grass! It is the second tear that makes kitsch kitsch.#8221;

  5. I have a person who forwards me emails that would consider this picture wonderful art. (To me it is a religious/political statement).Is “Beauty in the eye of the beholder” or is there an objective standard? And does that statement have anything to do with Art anyway? In otherwards, does Art have to be beautiful?

    Sorry I missed the meeting and the discussion there where you probably already talked about these things.

  6. No need to answer the rhetorical questions above as I was just thinking aloud and musing about what was said at the meeting. I’m sure you had much better and deeper insights than these. But the picture Dale linked to did strike a chord because of the the emails about the power of Christ I have been getting.

  7. I remember watching that during the original 1978 broadcast … and REALLY looking forward to it! The best thing about it was the Boba Fett cartoon.

    Not art, but it was great to see Bea Arthur in a Star Wars movie.

  8. The Star Wars thing is in no way art. It’s barely kitsch. It was painful to watch, and not in a Sweeney Todd kind of way, either.
