@bdouglas: In point of fact,

@bdouglas: In point of fact, that would not be a "Jesus Juke". That would be a reminder that people have significance and value, no matter who they are or what they're doing, or whether you approve of them.

Some people lose sight of that in their rush to make corrosive comments or pose sarcastic questions about people who can't defend themselves. It's somewhat surprising showing up on the 4th day of Christmas, don't you think?

From a friend

I saw a sign in a restaurant the other day that read: "If you have a need, ask God-if you don't Thank God"

@Fiat: Hey, I agree with your

@Fiat: Hey, I agree with your sentiment in the comment, it just turned religious out of nowhere. The exact same way a "Jesus Juke" works. Taking someone's honest opinion or sentiment and turning it into a "this one oughta make them feel like a horrible person" sort of rebuttal.

Perhaps people should think

Perhaps people should think about what they post, how heartless or petty it will come across to others, before sharing it, even if it is their honest opinion or sentiment.

It's always good to keep an eye on the eternal perspective, and that isn't about religion at all.

Pushing a grocery cart, no local address, it apparently was a homeless person. God bless her soul.
