Lady Liberty Fights Vampires.

I saw this bumper sticker on a car recently and I thought to myself, Finally! The statue of Liberty is taking a hard a bold stand against vampires.

We all know vampires hate the cross, watch any vampire movie. We also know, Dracula is from Transylvania. So where better than the Statue of Liberty to put a giant vampire deterrent.

We all know, since vampires with be immigrating into the U.S. this could not have happened too soon. I am just not sure why it took Lady Liberty this long to get on board.

I wan’t my son to know that while he was still a small boy, a few brave men and women rose up to fight the threat of vampire invasion so he and generations to come could sleep soundly.

I can only hope we will surround Ellis Island with a circle of salt to protect us agains witches.

After conceding that maybe this is not about vampires, I wonder, what is it actually about?

I wonder, if Jesus had a bumper sticker on his donkey, what would it say?

The thing is, I think I agree with this bumper sticker while disagree with it at the same time.

I remember at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, when he was being tempted i the desert, he was offered rulership of the whole world, if he would just give up his mission of liberating the world from the sins that kept us in captivity.

He didn’t.

I am all for religious liberty. Really I am. But maybe if we concerned ourselves with loving God and loving our neighbor, we wouldn’t need these stickers anyways. I don’t know of anyone who is anti loving our neighbor. I have not felt that right suppressed.

So

If Jesus had a bumper sticker on his donkey, what would it say?

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40
