Blue Gal - The Makeover Edition

Yep, it's summertime, slow news month, and time for some topics of dubious import.

Lots of bloggers have raised the hue and cry about the Memphis so-called "Christians" who built an ersatz Statue of Liberty holding a giant cross. One more brick from the wall between Church and State.

Not too many bloggers have commented on just how tacky it is. But then again, it is in Memphis. Kinda explains that whole Jungle Room at Graceland thang.

The other thing is, the Memphis folks obviously have never met the actual Lady Liberty. Her people came from western Europe in the nineteenth century, and she lives in Manhattan. Born again megachurch Christian? Ya think?

If Lady (call me Stephanie) Liberty actually had the makeover of her choice, my bet is she'd look more like this:

Just saying.

  1. Priceless, BG. And - as you are my muse, I've come out of hiding and added these drawers (and shirts, mugs and stickers too!) to a line of hobby-wear. Pardon the dust-up at ReddPepper and the lack of other inspired output. And thanks for letting me always whore my panties.

    So are you saying Ms. Liberty is a Jewish American Princess or a tranny?

  3. Makeover of her choice, or makeover of *my* choice?

  4. Um, looking at the makeover it looks pretty tacky either way.

    What I want to know is when the French are going to file suit against the church for stealing their intellectual property?

    I bet the church could defend itself by saying they have no intellect.

  6. How could they possibly make an already wretched poem by Emma Lazarus even more wretched?

    Oh, yeah, they're completely insane. That must be it...

  7. I love how that pesky little thing, the Sermon on the Mount, falls on "selective ears" when it comes to public displays like this.

    From the book of Mark:

    5 "When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites! They love to stand up and pray in the houses of worship and on the street corners, so that everyone will see them. I assure you, they have already been paid in full. 6 But when you pray, go to your room, close the door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what you do in private, will reward you.
