Comedy Central developing a cartoon starring Jesus Christ

leave a comment »

In the midst of all the hubbub over using the image of Muhammed in South Park, it seems as if Comedy Central wants to bank on their controversial publicity. The network is now developing a cartoon that would star Jesus Christ as the main character, focusing mainly on a son trying to live up to his father’s expectations.

There is nothing set in stone yet and South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are not part of the development process so there is no word if the South Park version of Jesus would be the character in question.

But one thing is sure, there is going to be a LOT of fighting over this show if it gets produced.

Interesting video. I can’t verify where it came from, but some sources are saying that its from Campus Crusade for Christ from a few years back. Definitely worth a watch.

North Korea sentences U.S. citizen to 8 years for crossing border

leave a comment »

Aijalon Mahli Gomes has been sentenced to 8 years in prison and a fine of 70 million won ($700,000US) for crossing the North Korean border from China. It is unclear as to why he crossed the border, but come on, he’s listed as a devout Christian. Why else would he have gone?

Gomes is from Boston but was teaching English in South Korea at the time when he decided to hop up to China and go into the communist state to do some good will.

It’s unlikely that Gomes will serve the 8 years of his sentence. He will most likely be released early as an act of good will toward the United States as 3 other U.S. citizen have in the past year.

The Divinity of Sex

leave a comment »

An interesting quote by Rich Heffern, posted by Andrew Sullivan on sex, on how Heffern believes both the liberal and fundamental approach to the topic is poor:

To say that sexuality is just an animal instinct, an obstacle to holiness, is to say that sexuality has nothing to do with our humanity. But in fact our sexuality is an integral part of our personal and interpersonal identities. From childhood it looms large in our lives, and we must deal with it one way or the other. Thomas Moore, in his best-selling book The Soul of Sex, writes:

“We have a habit of talking about sexuality as merely physical, yet nothing has more soul. Sex takes us into the world of intense passions, sensual touch, exciting fantasies, many levels of meaning and subtle emotions. It makes the imagination come alive with fantasy, reverie and memory. Even if the sex is loveless, empty or manipulative, still it has strong repercussions in the soul, and even bad sexual experiences leave lasting, haunting impressions.”

There is an ancient wisdom, even within the Judeo-Christian tradition, that maintains that sexuality is primarily spiritual, possibly the single greatest source of spiritual vitality in the human psyche. Sexuality is a mode of interaction with divinity. The Old Testament’s Song of Songs describes the relationship between Yahweh and humans in the most gloriously sensual and erotic images and poetry. Catholic mystic St. John of the Cross used sexual intimacy as the effective analogy for understanding intimacy with God. St. Augustine referred to the cross of Christ as a marriage bed, intimating that our sexuality has infinite redemptive dimensions.
