One of the Disciples Interrupted Him

Seeing the crowds, Jesus went up the mountain. And when he was seated his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak to them. This is what he taught them:

“You have heard how it was said, Take an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say this to you: Offer no resistance to the wicked.”

Then one of the disciples interrupted him. “But, Master, what if a bad guy breaks into our home, or tries to rape our wife and daughter? What about Hitler?”

Jesus looked at them and sighed, then went back down the mountain. They shouted after him, “The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, Jesus!”

Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? - New Music

I have been enjoying the words of my new favorite lyricist, The Quotable Becca - but the words for this new song come from the daughter of another set of friends; these are from The Existential Lilly. It's a bleak twist on an old favorite.

Hey dad, Why did the chicken cross the road?
I don't know. Why?
To die.

Summer Sunset

I drove across the state (again) yesterday. It was warm, (not hot: 10 degrees cooler than the day before, mind you...) but the sun as it set behind the wind turbines along I-80 was glorious.
