Jesus loves the little children

2008-11-06 14:07:56.175516+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

Gloria said "I found the spanking savior", and I thought this was creepy enough to pass along. It's a detail from the full sized page. Based on this page which lead me to this book, I believe that to be a page from one of David Berg's "True Comix". Berg was the founder of The Family

But I didn't toss this up to snicker at pedophilia, at least not completely. Okay, one more snicker, in this thread, Erica says:

OK, now I’ve seen everything. I am speechless.

I never knew Jesus was left-handed.

This caught my eye a little more because I recently read Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon. It's the first in a series of historical romance (with a little time travel thrown in), I quite enjoyed it, but I was struck by the attention paid to a particular spanking in that story line, and, once again, have had my eyes opened to the kink all around us.

OK I have to suggest that you visit the The Family page linked above and appreciate the caption on the photo on the main page, which shows a woman with her hand on the back of a man wearing a Spinal Tap t-shirt; the photo caption reads, "Sunny praying for a young heavy-metal fan."

Knowing Berg's pedophilic tendencies, I'm surprised the child being chastized by the Savior is wearing underpants.....er, did they have underpants back in 33 AD, much less Underoos?

I think they did, but per Leviticus 19:19 and Deuteronomy in the 22:9 22:11 region, they weren't cotton-poly blends.

Diane, I'm ordering my Spın̈al Tap T-shirt right now, that looks like my kinda prayer. (Hmmm... don't know if I got the umlaut over the "n" on that...)

Ech. More bad theology.
