Psht! We all know that the only threat to the Vatican is the resurrection of Raptor Jesus. Even the Flying Spaghetti Monster knows to back off when his time comes.
When I see in stories like these just how much daily life in Italy is affected by the Vatican, it realize that it's not so far-fetched that I'm writing a sci-fi novel in which the Vatican pretty much runs a third of the world. Maybe I'm a prophet... :-PIn any case, I now need to find some topic, any topic, to write about on my blog for which I could somehow justify using this photo.
I'm not historian, but as I understand it, Jeebus wasn't the only person ever to be crucified. What? Catholics own the trademark on crucifixion now? All the participants in the gladiator/slave revolt in first century Rome were crucified. Which is why I caption the work:I AM WARTICUS!
b80vin...your point is right on target. Same thing I said in my blog today. (I'm glad you had some newer posts since this one today, Chez...otherwise I would have felt bad about co-opting the same pic you used. But he's so damn cute I couldn't resist).
