I was only taking the p

My recent post – Kanehbosem – didn't go down well with some it seems, particularly the director of the film about Cannabis in the holy anointing oil (cf. the trailer here), and the webmaster of the webpage from which I cited much of the material. Indeed, as you can read in the comments of my post, the sourpuss asked me to remove the pictures of the bearded and interesting headwear Reverend Baldasaro and the Reverend Tucker. Pity.

He also felt my post was narrow-minded and uneducated. But as I pointed out in my response to his comment, I wasn't trying to be either.

I was just taking the piss.

And if the film producer was referring to my comments about the statements on the webpage to the effect that both Catholic and Protestant churches are the antichrist, to be noted is that I agreed with their reasoning:

"How true. Some of these stupid antichrist churches have bothered about defining oneself as Christian by faith in atoning work of Christ, works of justice and mercy, justification by faith etc. when all along they should have been skinny dipping in enough Cannabis to keep Snoop Dogg happy for a year" (italics mine)

In answer to their question: 'If Jesus was called "Christ" by receiving the Holy Anointing Oil, how are we to be called Christians?', once again I agreed:

"Indeedy. Unless you've been smeared from head to foot in half a bag of Marijuana, don't you have the cheek to go calling yourself a Christian"

Righty ho, I hope I've cleared that issue up.

I think these guys should hook up with the Heaven's Rehearsal folks I just blogged about and see what happens. What a wacked out trailer.

Er ... when he said he's given permission for people to link to his web page, exactly what was he on? You need permission to link to a web page now?!!

I thought smoking pot was supposed to make people chill out... I wonder if these Church of the Universe people are missing out on the good stuff.

Sounds like they're nearly as cantankerous as Jim West!

Chris, you really shouldn't post anonymously on your own blog...

What exactly does "taking the piss" mean? I guess I haven't encountered that one here in Wisconsin.

RT, I would understand it as making fun of someone without intending to cause serious offence.

That's a very British expression Chris. It throws us North Americans off at first. I have lots of Brit friends so the shock has long since worn off, but I'm not sure I could get away with it. No one would have a clue what I was talking about.
