RE: Post 1 thread 1
Have you heard of the Miracle of the Holy Ass that our favorite teacher has shown us?

If not, here you go:

Here's one example, Matthew quotes Zechariah during Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Zechariah 9:9 says, "Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey."

Zechariah was using an old Hebrew poetic trick of parallel phrasing to express the same idea or object. It is clear that he meant only one animal. However, in his zeal to prove that Jesus was indeed the Christ, Matthew says that he literally fulfilled this prophecy. Matthew 21: 4-7 says: "The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them".

Jesus rode on two animals simultaneously! Even more amazing, one was smaller than the other! How do you think he achieved this feat of riding and what should we call this miracle? Since anything Jesus sat on may be considered holy, I previously suggested "The Miracle of the Holy Ass".

Not that I'm aware of, though you better know your stuff or you'll get ripped apart.
Other than that, just don't be an idiot.

I'm sorry, I was going to pm you about that. My bad.

The thread is closed for a while because it devolved into a slagging match and repeated derails. It's closing had nothing to do your OP or the content of most posters or your replies.

If you'd like, you can start another thread or wait for that other thread to be reopened.

Again, I should have pm'd you about this. Real life stuff sometimes can get in the way -- as well as other distractions.

Sincere apologies,

Laugh out load what do you know about 'better arguments?' One liners and general obstinance does not an argument make.

Reply to my comment about the Holy Ass. I know it sounds like I'm joking, but it's serious.
That debate will make.

no problem I can wait. I don't want you to have to go our of your way. I honestly try and stay with in the parameters of the forum rules. I was just asking if I had broken one.
