One Kansas church wanted to put the Christ in Christmas so convinced 400 of its members, including at least one woman and one black, to don the traditional garb of Jesus - white sheets and a thorny crown - and walk the streets in the days leading up to Christmas.
What did Jesus do? Apparantly he drank a lot of coffee, read the newspapers, and did a little shopping. Srsly. A manifesto, of sorts, at the church website reads,
What would people think if we called: Martin Luther King day, MLKday? George Washington's birthday, GWday? Veteran's day, Vday?You know, I was pondering that just the other day as I was driving down MLK Boulevard. As far as I'm concerned, Christ was his slave name, and Jesus would, by now, have substituted it for an X.
Plus, it's pretty much a rip off of Santacon.
