It seems that the quirky website World News Daily flew an airplane puling a banner, ‘Where’s His REAL Birth Certificate’ over the Dallas football stadium last Sunday. No one saw it [the banner] because the stadium’s dome was closed. Funny idiocy, but then, look at their theme.
I was wondering about that OTHER famous birth, the one that millions of Christians are going to celebrate in a dozen days or so. Has anyone found HIS birth certificate? Funny stuff. By the way, if they did find it, whose name is on the line reading ‘father’? Does anyone care or should we only care when there is some political gain to be had?
Another interesting query about that 2000 year old birth might be: When was it? I wonder how many Christians ‘believe’ it was on the 25th of December? Half? Three-quarters? When these same believers sing that old Christmas hymn about the shepherds tending their flocks in the fields, do they know that shepherds don’t do that in the winter months? Or, didn’t that ever occur to them? Further, of the Christians who DO know that 25 Dec. was not his birth, do they know why it was moved to that date? What percentage know about Mithras whose birth was at this time of year?
Curious stuff, but most will say, ‘Who cares?’
