Cult of the Sockists
« on: December 28, 2011, 10:42:47 PM »
Face of Jesus found in sock by London woman doing laundry

Sarah Crane was shocked to find the face of Jesus in the sole of a sock she had just hung out on the washing line to dry.

It might have been a case of divine intervention, or simply a crease, but Miss Crane from Orpington was convinced she had found the image of Christ.
 
She was so surprised by the likeness she even built a shrine to the disheveled item of clothing...

I'm not sure how to respond.
I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Well, I guess Jesus never had a reason to be ashamed of airing his dirty laundry in public. I guess it also goes to show that when you try to air the Lord's dirty laundry in public, even that comes out clean. Christ-cleanser, the only detergent to use blood to get out even the worst stains, like more blood. It's everywhere you want to be.

That's nice. But what does it smell like?
