Skeppsrån (watchers of ships) are beautiful but elusive women who guard ships sailing across the ocean, protecting them from raging storms and the giant beasts that lurk down in the deepest waters. Some believe skeppsrån were originally skogsrån; their spirits trapped within the wood planks of the ship and forced to leave their precious forests to roam the seas instead.
Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.
I appreciate what you’re saying with this post, but first of all, Jesus was not a Palestinian. You’re confusing two different ethnic groups based on geographical similarities. There was no such thing as health care let alone universal health care back in the day. You’re erasing the historical political context out of what was happening within the hierarchy of the Jewish religion at the time. He wasn’t protesting oppressive churches, bc first of all they weren’t churches,they were temples, and second of all, he was protesting the closure of the Jewish religion. Not oppression. He wanted the common people to have better access to God. And he didn’t want redistribution of wealth, he just was disgusted with the wealth of the temple. Priests were meant to be men of God, poverty and all that and they were the wealthiest people in Jewish society. He didn’t want the Priests to take poor peoples money.
So like I said, I do appreciate what you’re saying and I do think that if Jesus lived today he’d lean more liberal than conservative but you can’t erase the important historical context of something just for the sake of making kitschy little tumblr text posts. Especially with someone like Jesus, who has had the historical facts surrounding his life erased for thousands of years.
