Link: Steve Jobs dubbed \"Divine Creator\"
Posted on MacBytes.com

Not just "Divine Creator", but "Holy Divine Creator"
pushing it by calling this "Humor"
That is just a poorly written cartoon.
This is just dumb...
Sadly the link wouldn't load for me. In my belief there is only one divine creator, it isn't Steve Jobs.
Agreed. I don't want to sound uptight, but what's with the recent few "Humour" links relating Apple with christianity. Not the biggest fan of having my faith compared to a machine, but anyway.
Can't comment too much though, coz the link won't load for me either
I'm not the biggest fan of your faith to begin with, but you don't see me trying to shut down sites about it, do you? I've had Christianity shoved down my throat for years upon yearrs, by people with varying degrees of intention - from the simple belief they're trying to help me to the brimstone conviction of the tent rivavlists.
Nobody made you click the link or read any of the material. The exposure is entirely under your own direction. I wish I could say the same about the abuse I've had to endure from supposed Christians.
I could not get the cartoon to load...
I'm very sorry to hear that kind of pressure being put on you. Pressuring someone tends to be a turn off as you have indicated. I believe that only God can change a persons heart.
Wow, everyone gets so uptight about religion. It was just a bad joke. When I finally got the site to load and could see the cartoon, it was just a joke about seeing things that aren't there. If you're seeing the Virgin Mary in your toilet, no matter how religious you are, I think you're seeing things.
The funniest part is that these are Christians making fun of themselves.
Yeah, let's keep all such discussion elsewhere, particularly because for many it's a touchy topic, and, in some cases, people take it far more personally than politics. Getting personal with politics is already bad enough!
I stronlgy dislike (not hate, but dislike) comic strips, because often I find myself trying to decide where to read first -- the quote up and to the right vs. the one down and to the left, and then the one with a straight line connecting the two of them -- and that totally f***s up my experience with the comic strips. (That is especially true for long comic strips.) So the comic strip from the original link is already a turn off. Not to mention, that particular one was wayyy lame. (All right, maybe somebody can make something out of the "Loo" part, but that's it.) I'm glad it was kept short.
It seems to me that so far everybody participating in this thread is treating Monday's strip like it's a standalone joke.
Considering that it's Wednesday, the story arc around this is still only just beginning, and this strip is known to go on 2 or 3 week storylines which can be revisited over several months (after all Donald Rumsfield has only just stopped hiding under their coffee table, and he was introduced into the strip over a year ago) isn't that just a wee bit premature?
Reading Monday's strip and saying the joke is lame, is kind of like reading page 245 of _Order of the Phoenix_ and then saying you don't see why people read Harry Potter.
That's a fairly poor analogy to make. Example: Shadowfax read the book The Catcher in the Rye and doesn't see why all his friends like it so much. (I guess I'm one of his friends.) So what exactly does your above analogy about Harry Potter demonstrate? (Don't bother asking me to search for where Shadowfax said that...)
It says that if Shadowfax is intelligent enough that he knows he can't take something out of context and make a snap judgement on it.
Putting it in context and making an informed judgement is the way to go.
