Today is Good Friday and after coming across this disturbing video of some deeply religious folks in the Phillipines re-enacting the crucifixion of Jesus, well I just had to show you the video and add my 2 cents. Because we all know by now, I ALWAYS have 2 cents to share about every subject under the sun.
Why would anyone think Jesus is going to be touched and impressed by all these folks reminding him about the worst day in his life. I know if my friends wanted to impress me, re-enacting the day my marriage fell apart certainly wouldn't be the way to do it.
Let's accept the fact that I have not immersed myself in religious theology deeply. When I was growing up in the boondocks of Southern Louisiana, ( where my Southern Baptist momma forced me and my two sisters to attend church and Sunday school EVERY Sunday), at least once a month I would attempt to use my monthly period and it's accompanying cramps to get out of going to Sunday service.

WE COULD NOT SAVE CLIFF'S
RIP my fave vintage used book store
HELP SAVE A PASADENA LANDMARK-
630 E Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91101
Pasadena, CA 91101
CLIFF'S USED BOOKS on 635. E. Colorado in Pasadena, CA needs help, they are now selling their books at 50% off and they need our help if they are to remain open.
I love, love , love books and every other weekend when I have a free Saturday, I spend hours in used book stores and thrift shops in my area, purchasing cool, old, out of print books that need new homes with people who will appreciate them. One of my fave haunts is CLIFF'S BOOKS in Pasadena.
Well anyway, owner, Cliff Gildart’s bookstore, CLIFF'S BOOKS has been voted BEST USED BOOKSTORE IN PASADENA, L.A. AREA 19 times since the store opened 25 years ago in 1985 at the same location, 635 E. Colorado Ave.
The bookstore is dusty and old and perfect for spending hours for searching for that perfect book or author, that you haven’t seen in print in decades.
Cliff’s Books is specifically for folks who love reading and love the feel and smell of an old and well crafted book. What Cliff’s books brings to the community is something that will not be missed until his shop is closed.
Cliff is elderly and ill and now they have a 50% sale on all books as they are looking for new owners or trying to afford to close down.
My heart breaks.
Also go to KFI AM 640 and email Jon & Ken firstname.lastname@example.org asking them to do a CASHMOB at Cliff's Books.
