So I was cruising on Yahoo today - Checking emails and this title appeared on the homepage - 'Simon Cowell the modern 'Jesus'... Excuse me while I screw my face up in disgust.
the article says
the article says
"A Christian magazine has compared Simon Cowell's straight-talking style to that of a modern-day Jesus.
Evangelical magazine Re, the journal for the Assemblies of God church, even puts the messianic music mogul on the cover.
“Jesus, the one we think of as being meek and mild, gentle and loving and full of compassion, had the ability to talk tough,” says the article.
“For some his words were upsetting and difficult to swallow - just like Cowell's - but he spoke truth and doesn't the truth hurt sometimes?
“Simon Cowell takes, learns from them and grows in the process, and there are numerous stories in the Bible of people who do the same.”
They also compare the SyCo boss to Abraham and the prophet Elijah. [The Sun]"
Now I don't normally comment on this world's foolery but this? Really, how you gon' compare some music mogul to Jesus. It's like comparing the molecule of a sand grain to the Eiffel tower! I mean this here 'Christian' magazine, I am going to assume that these magazine people are saved *side eye* Mind you if these were just sinners in the world I wouldn't pay attention to this, but these are people proclaiming God's name. That ought to seem weird to you. This couldn't have been a mistake either, you cannot tell me that in a company where stories are rewritten and republished, not one Christian saw something wrong with this?
So what, just because a man states his opinion makes him some supreme being. Throw in some tight white shirts and million dollar cars and oh not to forget bleached white teeth (to match his t-shirts) and lets crown him Jesus Christ yay! There we have it, our personal Lord and saviour. The man that was crucified for us, the man changes lives... The one and only Mr. Simon Cowell! Because of course he shed his blood for us all!
Now lets all worship him. Oh wait some already do! like they did Micheal Jackson and Beyonce and Madonna and Jay-Z (or Jayhovah if you need to be specific) and like they do Gaga, matter of a fact lets just worship all celebrities because they're just so darn worth it! =D
note: I am in now way saying you should go and worship these people, lest you wish to, though I don't recommend it. This isn't a vent either... sort of
