Palm Sunday!

Matthew 21:5

"Tell the daughter of Zion,

Behold, your king is coming to you,

humble, and mounted on an ass,

and on a colt, the foal of an ass."


Palm Sunday is the day when an ass was more sensible than a theologian and theologians behaved like asses.  Today, seek the wisdom of the donkey who bore Christ and avoid the folly of the "dissenting" theologian who bores him.  Shout "Hosanna" along with the children.  It's all still true, you know!
