What morality launches a pre-emptive war, ravages the environment, awards sweetheart deals to buddies, and bankrupts working people? -- Elisabeth Gruner
Ever notice how in Last Supper scenes, there's almost always one apostle who is draped on a chair, supported by a pal or half-lying on the table? I'm sure he's supposed to be postrate with grief or something. But he always reminds me of a guest who has had too much vino. I imagine him lolling drunkenly in his seat, slurring something blasphemous like, "You want us to eat and drink WHAT?!?" in response to the first communion.
Really! Actually, the concept of 'eating the god' to become more godlike was well-known at the time. The word "enthusiastic" has its source in this process.Another thing I find interesting about Last Supper paintings is in some cultures there is always a beardless apostle but in some cultures all have beards.
