Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Webber & Rice



A classic of the stage and cinema, Jesus Christ Superstar still resonates with me over forty years after its creation by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, a pair of English blokes.

It is still metaphor, a partly hyperbolic and leftist interpretation of the events Christians cherish.

I actually like, with some reservations, leftist Christians.  The fundamentalist right--not so much.
