I had to post this because of the effect it had on Facebook.
Granted I was half poking fun at the religious, and half showing some ignorance. And a bit of what I thought would be humor.
This meme, as I was very surprised, got quite a few people giving the 'I'm never afraid to post about God. And just how few actually knew that the pic is of Obi Wan Kenobi,... not Jesus.
I really thought that people would get the joke right away. But instead, a lot of arguments came about being proud to say I love Jesus. Which BTW, I also found funny.
Facebook is good for this kinda crap. I remember the one with Jesus arm wrestling the devil. You always have to share these to show what side you are on and be patient coz Jesus don't do nothing until he gets a certain number of likes. Tell Obi Wan that Jesus looks like Jeffery Hunter.
There are dozens of modern shows about jesus, this could have been taken from anyone. So the fact it's a star wars character is truly irrelevant to the situation. The important part is that in your attempt to make fun of jesus, instead you got people talking about him. Maybe you even helped reach that soul that was curious, and your meme attached to proud christian walls got his attention. All publicity is good publicity, so thank you for bringing well needed attention to the savior God, Jesus. People need to know him now more than ever. It's nice to see god works, even through the heathens...like he always has...irony.
I first thought it looked like Ewan McGregor playing Ben and so many bad jokes came to mind about Star Trek vs Star Wars. The question of if you can put it on the wall using sticky tape or do you have to use nails. Maybe a political riff, especially directed at the evangelicals: I prefer my religious figures to not be captured and crucified. Just so much fun with insensitive remarks!
