a gracious van

October 19, 2010 at 11:53 am 7 comments

Here is a picture I took at a stop light a couple of weeks ago. I would have liked to meet the owner of the van, with their interesting combination of bumper stickers; one from a fundamentalist university which once banned a student Democrat club, and the other showing support for the anti-christ now President Obama. I wonder what kind of looks they would receive from passers-by at an alumni weekend back in Lynchburg?

Which reminds me of the bumper sticker on my father’s car, which attended a couple of conservative evangelical church conferences with us. We would always wonder if it raised any eyebrows.

    It’s a refreshing reminder that there still are multi-faceted people with independent minds. I give the van driver a virtual hand shake!

    Yeah, I mix people up being an animal-slaughtering Buddhist type who is socially very liberal but loves guns.
    Keep ’em guessing — life is too short to please “them”!

    Sabio, you should put bumper stickers on your car for all those things!

    I refuse to put bumper stickers on my car for aesthetic reasons, but I get a kick out of reading what other people glue onto their vehicles. I made a small concession to my local representative and put his bumper sticker in my back window. Not quite what he wanted, but it’s all he’s going to get from me, besides my vote.

    What amazes me is how being the christian that you alledge yourself to be, hatred of anything else is the first sentiment that drops from your lips. It just shows that some “christians” are yet and still, assholes.

    mark, your comment makes no sense at all. Unless you think I am a fundamentalist Christian slandering president Obama? If so, that’s not the case.

    love the coexist bumper sticker. Another sticker that created cognitive dissonance for me was seeing a Greenpeace sticker on the back of a honkin huge SUV. Huh?
