My cup runneth over with posts!
Also, even more posts!
I started a new job this week (same employer, same job title, but new role) and I’m honestly kind of frazzled from learning how to make radio again. I can’t really write anything intelligent tonight but there are a lot of good posts going around so here’s as many posts as I can fit before reaching the Gmail cutoff.
Many of these posts were sent to me by friends and readers! You are always welcome to send me posts on Twitter, Discord or just send them to me wherever, honestly. And if you have a friend who likes posts, send them this edition of Relics – it, too, is a post. A post of posts.
Dank Christian Memes loves the slap
The biggest pop culture story this week was undoubtedly Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. The image has become a popular exploitable across social media, and r/DankChristianMemes is no exception — for a few days it felt like every second post was in this format. Just like most of the takes generated by the event, most of the memes are bad, but hopefully you like these ones.
Links because otherwise this whole email would be slap memes:
Middle Earth Theological Seminary
My friend Tom sent me over a dozen of these pictures taken from a children’s Bible and captioned with Lord of the Rings quotes. They’re from a Facebook group called Middle Earth Theological Seminary. Sadly, about one-in-ten posts from there is very “owning the libs” brand homophobia or transphobia, but it’s mostly good.
Boomer Christian memes are *chef’s kiss*
Thanks to Tom for being the first to send me this.
Life-sized plushie Christ
I don’t understand what’s going on here but I laughed
Quite a few people sent me this, but I don’t want to talk about it
Click through to see a lot of Protestant shitposts about selling indulgences, for example this one (lifted from Bill Wurtz’ history of the entire world, i guess):
Ramadan is coming
Sorry to my Muslim readers but this anonymous person asking a K-pop stan about Ramadan on CuriousCat without knowing its what it’s called has completely polished me off.
Committing marriage fraud
I dont’ know if this strictly counts as a post about religion but marriage is a sacrament for Catholics so I’m counting it as one.
More more more!
If I haven’t posted the meme you sent me, don’t worry! This was fun to put together I’ll probably do another edition like this again. In the meantime, here’s some more links for you:
Religious and kinda homoerotic concept art from Venom: Let There Be Carnage (OP runs a NSFW furry account but this post is nothing like that)
