    Did Jesus ever drink to excess? Its pretty clear that the water to wine deal came in handy, but was Jesus a party animal. I can't imagine him being serious all the time. Did he get down, shake his booty and pull practical jokes on the disciples?

    Joy, which was the small publicity of the pagan, is the gigantic secret of the Christian. And as I close this chaotic volume I open again the strange small book from which all Christianity came; and I am again haunted by a kind of confirmation. The tremendous figure which fills the Gospels towers in this respect, as in every other, above all the thinkers who ever thought themselves tall. His pathos was natural, almost casual. The Stoics, ancient and modern, were proud of concealing their tears. He never concealed His tears; He showed them plainly on His open face at any daily sight, such as the far sight of His native city. Yet He concealed something. Solemn supermen and imperial diplomatists are proud of restraining their anger. He never restrained His anger. He flung furniture down the front steps of the Temple, and asked men how they expected to escape the damnation of Hell. Yet He restrained something. I say it with reverence; there was in that shattering personality a thread that must be called shyness. There was something that He hid from all men when He went up a mountain to pray. There was something that He covered constantly by abrupt silence or impetuous isolation. There was some one thing that was too great for God to show us when He walked upon our earth; and I have sometimes fancied that it was His mirth.

    -G.K. Chesterton in the closing paragraph of Orthodoxy.

    WWJD? What would Jesus drink?

    There is a beer, brewed by Shmaltz Brewing Company, called "HE'BREW - the chosen beer"

    I wonder if that would be Jesus' brew of choice these days.

    Edit: it seems that amongst their selections, they have Genesis Ale and Messiah Bold. I bet Jesus would go for the Messiah Bold.

    I like the way he puts pagans down to raise Christians up. Good one, Gilbert. A permissible strategy considering his target audience, though. And a famous boozer in his right, I believe--if the nose is anything to go by.

    Never, I repeat Never put pagans down, to raise anyone up, you may not believe it, but I believe in Karma and the threefold law, meaning if you do something to someone, you will get it back 3 times worse (as the case may be) or 3 times better. I'm sorry, I get uptight when people put down my own religion.

    Heh, no it doesn't I believe in a mix of draconic paganism, Vampirism, and a few others, which actualy leads to a lot of questions that could be asked and answered, which I will leave that to the thread I made.

    I find that when I get uptight it makes me want to stand up more for my own religion which I WILL do

    Good, as well you should. Don't expect a whole heap of support from anyone here though - you're pretty much the single representative of your religion. At least the Christians (KellyJay, Halitose, FreakyKBH, dj2becker et al) have each other to support them, and us atheists (Me, UmbridgeofSnow, Googlefudge etc) have each other too. It's going to be an uphill struggle for you, my girl.

    I do not mind it, my entire life has been an uphill struggle, and this is just one more thing I need to work with, I know I may be alone, I know that I may be put down, heck I know I could even be beaten for what I believe in, and believe me it has, but still I will stand back up, still saying that I believe in what I do now, even if death threatens me, I will not convert for anyone.

    What with the whole "I am the light, and the path and the way" garbage he always apparently talked it's clear he loved himself big time. I'm going for "arrogant bastard" ale. It's made by the 'Stone Brewing Company'.
