This image is 100 percent real.



I suspect it will inspire even more laughs than God's Not Dead's depictions of atheists.

what's the name of the movie?

A woman approached me in Walmart and asked if I could give her some money for gas so her freezing kids and diabetic mom* could get home to Virginia. She assured me that $37 would be enough. Alas, all I had that I could give her was $1.50  :-\

I heard an interview on the radio this morning in which Rula Ghani, the first lady of Afghanistan, was described as a "Lebanese Christian."

That he was able to render the Greek so accurately, presumably without knowing any Greek, is very impressive, though. Can't say I endorse tattoos, but you could have done a lot worse.

How many yiayias and other actual Greeks will meet him and slap him upside the head for taking it so lightly, the Prayer?

Maybe he wanted it to be constantly visible on his arm so that he would be reminded of it even when his mind was elsewhere. It's hard to pray constantly.

That doesn't change what other people will think about it

And unless he has no memory. Isn't the 'reminder' to pray what the prayer rope bracelet is for ?

Monumental masons (people who provide gravestones and monuments) and signwriters deal with foreign alphabets and scripts all the time. If they're capable of getting it right, I'm sure a tattooist should be capable of copying something properly.

Plus, if you don't know the alphabet then it simply becomes copying a picture, which they can do very well as artists

They won't. If there is one tired and old cliche that I've yet to see, it's the tired and old cliched odox woman who knows no boundaries.

One woman came close to this description at one parish I attended. Most converts let her bully them and the Priest would intervene. The first time she came at me with that nonsense I made it clear in a glance this would go nowhere and I wasn't her Balkan forever adolescent alcoholic to berate.

After that is was just overly zealous hugs and kisses.

This odox trope is some apology for patriarchy so the women feel vested as it were.

You should see what I was able to do at 14 to myself. In short, I never got above a U+ in handwriting as they called it.

I even had practiced on others first.

James might be doing the wrong things, but he's at least doing them the right way.

When we were discussing whether I would be received via baptism or Chrismation, I told my Priest I had "some" tattooing. He, being forever never taken aback, assured me he'd seen it all and that it wouldn't be a problem.

To make sure, I disrobed, and well . . . He tried as kindly as possible to suggest that if the Bishop insisted on baptism it would have to a more private matter than normal.

Later, he asked in so many words, what the hell were you thinking?

A better man, I've yet to meet.

Perhaps this is a little out of school, but some hipster inquirer got some "icon" tattooed on himself. The Priest involved there was furious and made certain he knew his wait would be longer to be made a catechumen than they had planned.

I told the guy he should have asked first . . .

Unlike James this guy wasn't a young kid making it even more ridiculous and humiliating.

Did your sponsors get warned in advance?

My Baptism ended up passing muster. And my sponsor in way took shine to me cause of it. He was involved in prison ministry and had adopted more than a few kids with very troubled backgrounds. So the fact I was above ground, sober, and not beating the tar out of someone made me a success.

During my time as a catechumen I only got into one physical altercation, so again not so bad.
