I’ve met a couple of Nuns who could have managed it.
Well, at least Opus will get in.
Just be buried in a tux.
My dear dear Almighty – that stunt may not fly with that lot.
The Evangelist’s will not like this one bit.
Opus will be THRILLED when his day cometh!
Gonna see Opus in heaven!!
a Penguin, as God?! LAUGHS
We do this as small children, and since we never get any more information (what information is there to get?) or childhood imaginings of God as a BIG man never really change. Big, long beard, all-powerful, capricious and with a LOT of jealousy and a mean streak when crossed.
Especially with those who say there are no absolutes (absolutely).
Inspired humorous “messing”: “The slothful say, ‘There is a lion outside that will devour me in the public square!’” (Proverbs 22:13)
Sister Mary. Long time, no see.
Okay, that one is sort of funny, plus my granddaughter likes penguins.
That’s NOT how the Flying Spaghetti Monster does things!
J.C. most likely looked like a first century Jew. The only physical descriptions that we have of God the Father is as a pillar of fire or smoke and as a burning bush. Neither of these are very human-like. God the Holy Spirit is depicted as a tongue of flame – again that fire imagery.
Colonel Sanders at the Pearly Gates and there being chicken statues outside it was one of my favorite Far Sides.
Having fun with ignorant zealots, you mean. True “absolutists” would find it funny as well.
It’s my way of explaining to myself why bad things happen.
(compares a certain “Non-Sequitur” cartoon with “© 19 WILEY INK, LTD. 7-14” that appeared to have had been on a certain part of this site involving text of “Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller for July 14, 2019” and the one here with “7-14” and © 2015 WILEY INK, LTD.")
If God created man in His image, perhaps He made it so that anytime one sees God they see what they EXPECT to see. Whites see white, blacks see blacks, penguins see penguins, etc.
When ever I see an image of God he has a beard. So why do absolutist men shave?
I bet God laughed when She saw this cartoon.
Been wondering. If a totally different form of sentient life is ever discovered on other planets, will their history also include a god who made them in his own image? And will we then go to war to prove who’s god is the true god?
And I was SO worried about overcrowding up there. . .
True, man made-up hundreds of gods and demi-gods because they were clueless about Him then and more so today. The one true God is “Spirit” and He dwells in eternity (Isaiah 57:17).
So – who decided God was a man (created in his image)? A bunch of white men. Bah, humbug. God could have been anything from a large lizard to a 10 foot tall black female.
“God created man in his own image. And man, being a gentleman, returned the favor.” Mark Twain (I think)
Nice debate about the nature and/or existence of the invisible superman in the sky, folks, but doesn’t the legend go that St. Petey man’s the gate, not the big guy?
I briefly embraced Evangelical Christianity in my late teens (when the Jesus Freak thing was all the rage). When Jimmy Carter the Evangelical DEMOCRAT was running for president I thought voting for him was the obvious action. Apparently, since he was not GOP I was directed to vote for Gerald Ford, the Republican. I quickly abandoned this snake pit of hypocritical hucksters…
It has been said that “god” is the name given to the sum total of all that exists, could exist, might exist…..
I am a Christian and a conservative and I think that this is very funny. We take our selves way too seriously. Civilization (as we know it) has been on this planet for tens of centuries and we think “oh we are so modern and know so much” and yet we have all the problems people have always had. I thank God for the gift of a sense of humor! (insert smile face here)
So I guess only Nuns are getting in…
God is a Were Penguin? Who Knew?
actually the coloration of penguins to men in tuxedos. Hence the cartoon character Tennessee Tuxedo.
So Heaven is full of penguins? ’Bout time.
I’m agnostic, and I’m still ROFL … ;)
Drat. Now I have to add a tux rental non-return penalty to my funeral costs.
God is omnipotent, which means he can look like anything you can imagine.
If there were a heaven, it would have to be a place where tricks can be played (and I’m not just talking about bridge), music can be whatever you like, conversational gambits never fall short (or if they do, you don’t mind) and every meal is both delicious and non-fattening. Plus millions of new things to perceive and manipulate, every one of them just around a corner from all your old favorites. And my jokes would make angels laugh!
When will they let you back in the newspaper? He is everything bad and it needs to be said.
Does anyone here remember an old movie called “The Man With X-ray Eyes”? In the end he claimed he could see God and He looked like an eye. All seeing eye?
Does Jesus dress as Opus to join in the fun?
This is a good one.
I like the one where God is on a cloud with what looks like his accountant, there are symbols showing death and destruction below, and he says “OK, lesson learned. Next time, no religion.”
Only those who worship the Pittsburgh Penguins may enter!
Never forget that God has a sense of humor, this is why he invented mirrors.
