Christians Riot Around World.

Catholics in Italy and in Spain, Orthodox Christians in Bulgaria, and many others in Scotland and South America rioted Thursday. They were triggered by the reports  that a fragment of papyrus suggested that Jesus the Christ was married.  Christians in several African countries burned down mosques with worshipers inside after looting the shops of Muslim merchants

The report incensed several varieties of Christians because it is a major article of faith among Christians that the Savior did not partake of the pleasures of the flesh (as marriage sometimes implies).

Elsewhere in the world, two Oslo rioters where shot dead by police trying to protect the embassies of Muslim countries. In Helsinki, ever-fanatical Lutherans tried to set the Egyptian Embassy on fire because the papyrus fragment in question originated in Egypt. One Finnish rioter declared that the new Islamist government of Egypt  concocted the blasphemous story or, at the very least, that it failed to censor it. Other rioters joined in to proclaim that the papyrus should have been suppressed out of respect for the Christian religion.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    Humor. It’s such a subjective thing …

    This article would be funny if it wasn’t such a tragic, satirical reflection on our times.

  2. I think it’s necessary to deal with gross absurdity through satire because adjectives quickly fail to express anything including a sense of the tragic and indignation. I may be wrong but it’s worth trying.

    Another lamestream media coverup. Those Lutherans came with rocket propelled grenade launchers, that was no spontaneous demonstration.

    Marvelous satire. Would be great for a NYTime op-ed if they’d ever print it.

    • Thanks, Peter. Please, take the trouble to pass it on and also “Levelling with Muslims” I am laboring in the Lord’s vineyard but that vineyard is in the back of the church, mostly out of sight.
