Derb’s Quote of The Day

You have to admit, this woman — She Whom I May Not Name — is awfully

quotable. This is from her column in HUMAN EVENTS, which I was reading over

lunch:

“In fact, Jesus’ distinctive message was: ‘People are sinful and need to be

redeemed, and this is your lucky day because I’m here to redeem you even

though you don’t deserve it, and I have to get the crap kicked out of me to

do it.’ That is the reason He is called ‘Christ the Redeemer’ rather than

’Christ the moron driving around in a Volvo with a BE NICE TO PEOPLE bumper

sticker on it.’”

I shall leave judgment of the lady’s theological soundness to those better

qualified. I will only say I enjoyed reading that so much, it was almost

enough to make me want to go and see That Movie. Almost.
