U Don't Know Me , Do You?





Oh dear.. My previous post seems to have ruffled some feathers
My reply perhaps is worth repeating

"Oh chris, do stop
I am not mocking at all
Jesus was " hatched" on Easter Sunday....hence the name
Even Jesus ( the real one), I suspect would have ventured a small smile at the fact a sweet little hen, with more chutzpah than joan Rivers, has his name after nearly getting eaten by a badger, getting bullied by the entire flock and having to cope with the fact that he/she is an ugly little bugger......

Yes I think your Jesus would have ventured a little smile"
I have written Going Gently since 2006
And not once have I ever mocked a religion or a religious figure
Tom Stephenson.........perhaps....religion never!
Chill a little eh
And please do pray for me..... That is a lovely thing to do for anyone

  1. I don't see that as mocking...

    Jesus is a common name - in Mexico - isn't it? I may be wrong. Now... if you had named the little thing Christ Jesus, I might have been in your face. JK

  2. Oh for heaven's sake! (A particularly apt expression here.)
    How intolerant can people be? And how lacking in imagination or a sense of humor!

  4. John, whether you go to church or not, whether you are a Christian or not (and I have no idea - everyone's faith is their own affair), but of one thing I am absolutely certain - of all the folk I blog with - you are the nost christian (note with a small c) person I know. Your help, humour and constant good deeds in that village of yours speak volumes.

  5. Totally agree Weaver. Animals and birds deserve that name more than any human. Good on ya x

  6. Here in the good ol' U.S. of A. is okay to mock Jesus.....but whatever you do, don't try to mock Obama (I speak from experience).

  7. Another vote for the weaver. Just been catching up John. David Sidaris is my hero. x

  8. "I can't believe that a group of 30 something guys (Jesus and the disciples) would have sat around and NOT had a good laugh at stuff".
    In quotation marks as it was said by my vicar.

  9. Surely God has a sense of humour?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Weaver of Grass is spot on.
    Anyone who believes in God and doesn't think the deity has a sense of humour need only look at a platypus... or any naked person who doesn't realise someone can see them.

  11. Your dog is called Winnie though...

    You should be more worried about mocking Winnie Mandela. She really might get even with you.

  12. It is getting more complicated now- did you know that cutzpa (חוצפה) is an Hebrew word (and Joane Rivers is Jewish)- when and why hebrew words seeped into english?

    1. That's interesting I think chutzpah is frequently used in English to signify exuberance

    2. Joan Rivers is a bloody witch, and represents absolutely nobody, let alone any Jewish people I have heard of.

      My Father's family were East End London Jews (but didn't like to admit it) and most of the words used as slang then had Yiddish origins.

      All these words creep into our language as 'sandwich' crept into French. Thank heavens it wasn't my Mother who was Jewish - Oy vey - what a thought.

  13. John - It looks like this guy is seriously damaged and needs your help, not the other way round.

    He clearly hasn't heard of St Francis - I bet he had poultry with biblical names.

    And as has been pointed out - he would be upbraiding the mothers of a fair proportion of the Hispanic world.

    1. I like chris
      He has a wonderful sense of humour( or did have)
      I just WONT be told off for something that is just not true
      I won't allow that

  14. How ridiculous. P.C brigade pop up when you least expect it. Get over yourself, people are called Jesus, Mohammed, Krishna etc.l agree with Weaver of grass, John is a perfect example of a christian by his deeds and compassionate nature with his fellow man and animals.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I also agree with Weaver! People with your heart and soul are far and few amongst my world. I wish I could find a few like you and gather them up to be my friends. Jesus is a very popular name in Mexico and here in the US among the Mexican population. The first time I ran across someone name Jesus I went huh, and that was sometime in the mid-70's. I think it was very fitting that you named that chick Jesus. Fits him perfectly being persecuted and all AND being born on Easter!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Isn't this Chris blogger the same guy who believes in that vile Westboro Baptist doctrine? And has been rude and disrespectful to John for being gay? If so, does he really think naming a chicken Jesus rates as an offense to Christianity compared to that kind of hateful rhetoric? Seriously?

  17. I assumed it was "Jesús," from Spanish parentage.

    1. Also, if he's truly concerned about protecting the Good Lord's name, there are a lot more important battles to fight. Sheesh.

    2. Me too. First time I saw the blog I mentally pronounced it as 'Hay-sus'. Maybe that says a lot about both of us, Alison.

  18. It never occurred to me that you were mocking anything......huh...go figure eh?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well said John and Weaver. It is so sad when people get so wrapped up in their beliefs they lose perspective.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ah, the freedom I have with a relatively anonymous blog, which church going neighbours don't read and I am free to mock all religions.

    1. Just a thought
      Don't bother
      It's too much effort

  21. I think that any time one causes indignation among that type is a sign you're doing something right. Good goin', John.

    Assuming for a moment that there is a heaven, imagine being cooped up for enternity with someone like that.....it'd be pure.......hell.

    2. You too, kid (you are almost 20 years younger, so to me that mean's jailbait, were it not for the dissimilar gender/attraction thingy). In the same way. You could scrub with me any time.

  22. I thought the name was brilliant because he was resurrected was he not?

  24. When last the doctor, Jesus took my blood pressure, and, worst, weighed me. Really nice fella.

  25. Kindness, not christianism, is most important to humanity. The two do not mean the same thing. Being called a "christian" is not always necessarily a compliment, and I know many a "Christian" who are complete arseholes. You are a kind man.

  26. I used to work with an older Mexican gentleman named Jesus. It was supposed to be pronounced "hāso͞os" but he got a big kick out of saying, " I am "jē'zəs," pretty much every day of the week. He was funny.

  27. Sigh. Oh course we know you meant no offense. Can't believe anyone took offense. xxx

  28. i wish i could be so original in naming our animals!

  30. Jesus is a perfectly common 'given name'. My wife was sitting next to one at a dinner party recently.

  33. This reminds me so of a joke I read recently:
    Late one night, a burglar broke into a house that he thought was empty. He tiptoed through the living room but suddenly he froze in his tracks when he heard a loud voice say: "Jesus is watching you!"
    Silence returned to the house, so the burglar crept forward again. "Jesus is watching you," the voice boomed again.
    The burglar stopped dead again. He was frightened. Frantically,he looked all around. In a dark corner, he spotted a bird cage and in the cage was a parrot.
    He asked the parrot, "Was that you who said Jesus is watching me?"
    "Yes", said the parrot.
    The burglar breathed a sigh of relief, then asked the parrot, "What's your name?"
    "Moses," said the bird.
    "That's a dumb name for a parrot", sneered the burglar. "What idiot named you Moses?"
    The parrot replied, "The same idiot who named the Rottweiler Jesus."

    Keep doing what you you're doing! Those who do not like it should not be here anyway. xx

  34. You'd better think carefully before naming any creature 'Mo', J.G., most especially a pig. Go ahead by all means, but just don't tell anyone.

  35. Years ago, when I worked for Interstate Hotels Corp, they took over the Chicago O'Hare Hyatt and I was sent there to set up the new payroll dept and train an associate to process it. Lo... and on the first payroll I processed, I paid Jesus 14 times.

  36. Jesus is a lovely name, and it totally suits your little Easter chick, what a lot of kerfuffle ;-)

  37. If you can't mock Jesus who can you mock, for chrissake?

  38. So that Chris dude must totally have a beef with the infamous "Nobody F**** with the Jesus" scene from The Big Lebowski. Cause, you know, he is called Jesus.
    Hopefully you all can view it :)
