A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
"ooh! a poor person in need of help! i better make sure they get arrested!" to me, that’s the issue that’s most troubling. Apart from that, the statue, and the idea behind it, is one of the parts of Christianity that even a grouchy atheist like me has to admire…
Okay, it should be noted that I have not read the entire book series or watched any of the television series (for the exception of the Purple Wedding episode which got my attention since everyone on my dash was freaking out about it. It was pretty good IMO.) But, low and behold… I am going to make a few prediction as to whom wins the throne in the end. I have gathered my predictions from reading the first quarter of the first book (put it down because I lacked the time to finish the book and have never picked it up again. I should get on it to read the entire book and completed books thus far… And I read enough to know that Ned Stark was killed off immediately, breaking my heart because it was him damn it who was suppose to live the ENTIRE series and bring peace to all Kingdoms. *le sigh*), read the first two graphic novel versions of GOT to at least get an idea of how things are setting themselves up for the longer story arc, etc., pretty much ‘watched’ the entire TV series because tumblrites are fantastic at GIFing the entire series and giving away all story plots, have read enough posts by people debating this or that to draw my own conclusions.
I am simply giving my thoughts clearly on random selection of information and this is entirely out of pure entertainment. I will not know I am right or wrong in my prediction until George R.R. Martin completes the book series and/or when the TV series raps up the entire show.
Okay on to my predictions for the final throne…
1.) Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister are the last two standing out of the principle cast, thus are the two to go battle royale in the end. I am going with Tyrion Lannister coming out on top. Jon Snow will die a valiant death and still be loved by all. As will Tyrion Lannister, because he has played his cards right and well the entire time.
2.) Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister team up and form the ultimate allegiance simple because they are both the odd men out in many regards and both have something to prove to EVERYONE. They will battle Daenerys Targaryen for the throne with the possibility of a few different outcomes:
B1.) They take the throne peacefully after defeating Daenerys and make a decision together who takes the throne while the other remains a closer advisor to the King. Whom becomes the King and whom becomes the close advisor is something I can’t make a guess on.
B2.) Both fight it out for the throne and scenario 1 mentioned first in my predictions happens because Martin is an evil genius and somebody well loved will be sacrificed to damage the fans’ hearts and minds forever.
So there you have it. I have no business giving such predictions, but I did. Debate, pick it apart, fight over it GOT style, tell me I know nothing about GOT (which I have already admitted! HA!), but there is my predictions. ENJOY!
