Dawn of the Dead and Armageddon via BoingBoing



Above, one picture from a slideshow of the knitted version of the Dawn of the Dead.



Via the post entitled Awesomely Weird Jehovah's Witness Art, also at BoingBoing, I found this picture and many more at the deadpan Quotes.Watchtower.ca, a site with this explanatory subheading: Quintessential, Decisive, Conclusive: "...delightful, correct words of truth"

People bearing the "Watchtower" magazine used to come to our door all the time. Now that I have a deerfence, though, they stay away.

This picture of happy Witnesses escaping Armageddon reminds me of my own born-again brother expounding: "I'm not afraid of dying, because I know I'll go to heaven. What makes me sad is that some people I love..." (looking pointedly at me) "will not be there."

Oh my gosh! What a story! I shake my head from side to side. I believe my brother feels the same way about me because I don't buy his universal truth either.

Let's you and I be alsewhere then and having a wonderful time. My compassionate Buddha statue will be there, Charlie, my dear friend, Mar-Mar and oh so many others.

And I cry out: Hallelujah!

What a story, indeed!

I am in awe that you play the violin and viola. My son used to play violin, and I miss hearing it so much inside my home. The walls seem empty at times.

I have had that said to me too, and my answer is "Judge not, lest you be judged". How the heck can anyone say that you (or anyone else) will not go to heaven when we don't know what heaven is or if it really exists.

A thoughtful, "Yes. I feel the same way," can work quite well in that situation.

Or, sometimes,

"No, I see what you mean. I don't think I'd feel comfortable either, subscribing to a belief that my friends will be roasted alive for eternity..."

And here I thought this was the weirdest knitting I'd ever see:

A peep at my own blog, though, will show that I generally prefer sex over violence in my knitted art.
