I Saw Jesus on State Street


For a Jewish girl I have been writing an awful lot about Jesus lately. There was the toast tattoo in Pennsylvania, the Cheez-Its comparison at Mohonk and now this very interesting shot of two young gentleman carrying a door-sized image down State Street in Madison.

Religious zealouts of this type fascinate me. I always wonder what their agenda is. Do the truly believe they will convert others? Is it tribe pride? Or are they just plain crazy? Seriously, do you wake up one morning and say to your buddy, “Hey Bill, let’s get a big picture of Jesus Christ and stretch it on a frame. Then we can walk up and down State Street and through campus with it.” Yeh, well either that or “Let’s go get some brunch”.

Whatever, it’s harmless. And as long as no one is pushing a pamphlet in my face I am good with the act of self expression.

Plus, it makes for a great picture.

    Jesus is a Badger??

  2. J.

    I’d say someone has a friend in Jesus. ; )

    So what’s the deal, Jesus can walk on water, but he has to be carried over concrete? That just doesn’t seem right.

  3. Dr. J, they may have stopped in to Insignia for a bucky shirt

    J. yeh, they carried this guy all over madison. saw him at the farmer’s market earlier. something about loaves and fishes.

  4. Hon – the Jews for Jesus are in Washington Square Park trying to convert folks all the time. Must be the beard.
