Jesus Shrine

This is Tamara’s (from Get Out Hudson) submission for last month’s Hoboken411 Yankees ticket giveaway! She digs the way the flowers spice up the neighborhood near this shrine on Jackson Street.

Photo of the elaborate shine found on Jackson Street near the projects on the backside of Hoboken. The colorful flowers definitely stands out near the bleak surroundings. A few years ago it was the site of the Jesus statue that had supposedly blinked and cried, which brought many to the area to witness the “miracle.”

[quote comment=”48508″]A cosmic Jewish zombie who was his own father wants you to telepathically acknowledge him as your master so that he can remove an evil force from your soul that was put there when a talking snake convinced a rib-woman to eat the fruit of a magical tree.[/quote]

That’s about the size of it. Least anyone think I am guilty of Christianity-bashing, all religions can be made to appear this silly quite easily….because all religions are silly; Judaism and Islam certainly among these.

[quote comment=”48430″]Not a theological expert but I believe people who pray to saints do it with the understanding that the saint, or dead loved one, will be a messenger of their prayer to their God.

BTW if I’m totally 100% wrong that’s fine. I really don’t want to get in an argument over this.[/quote]

Boy that seems like a distinction without much of a difference. Honestly, the way many of the latin Roman Catholics in particular approach christianity (pretty much god-like reverence for Mary for example) certainly resembles pagan and polytheistic relgions unless you want to put stock in the theologicaly academic hair splitting. Don’t get me started on the worshiping of bones, etc.

Where there is worshipping, tithing can’t be far behind. Perhaps this is how the town could solve the budget crisis. For every visit to the weeping statue make checks payable to….
Wouldn’t it be great if Jesus ends up solving the towns fiscal woes?
