crucifixion


The other day I had the misfortune of answering the door to a couple of super clean cut, bright eyes and big smiles, mormons. They wanted to come in my house ... asking to be invited in like old timey vampire rules. I said no and closed the door.

Ever think about the crucifixion cross and what it was originally intended for? A method to slowly, and painfully, kill someone, and then serve as a warning to others not to commit crimes. Quite brutal really. Now it's used as a symbol of faith and protection ... what a crazy world.

This image was tweaked recently and now looks a helluva lot better.

Time to go eat some pasta!
