But I wont be thanking Jesus for my holiday, its a secular reward but a head nod for believers. If it wasnt for Christmas, we'd have it for Newton, or the queen, or something.
I'd prefer the holiday wasnt for supporting superstition though.
as it turns out, our government has taken away the easter holidays for us, they now arrange the term break whenever the easter holidays are on, so its subsumed by the term break, uni's/schools dont get easter holidays any more.
we still eat easter eggs though.
Zombie Jesus who sort of came back from the dead...
Away in a graveyard, a stone overhead
The zombie lord Jesus is raised from the dead
The bones and the corpses are at his command
And rise like their master to swarm o'er the land!
The women are screaming, then running away
Poor Mary and Martha are gnawed where they lay
I fear thee, lord Jesus, your curs√©d undeath
With worms in your bowels and rot on your breath.
Have mercy, lord Jesus, don't eat me today
Next year I'll be bigger, I promise! I pray
Some shaman or rabbi or priestess or such
Will stake you and save us from your deadly touch.
I know Bible literalists apologists have their explanations, but they are ultimately just band aids over bull sh!t.
