Jesus saves (by shopping at Wal-Mart).

From the NY Daily News:
A South Carolina couple claims to possess one heckuva of a saintly sales slip--a Wal-Mart check-out receipt with the face of Christ on it.

Gentry Lee Sutherland and Jacob Simmons got the blessed bill of sale upon paying for the development of 11 photos June 12 at a Wal-Mart store in Travelers Rest, S.C.

"People are going to believe what they want to believe," said Sutherland.

"There's tons of people who will say, 'Oh, we're in the Bible Belt,' but here's my question to the doubters, who else has the power to put their face on a check-out receipt but Jesus?"

It wasn't until three days after they paid for the photos that Sutherland and Simmons divined the two eyes and bushy beard and hair that is now so evident when they look at the receipt.

Oh lord. Why would Jesus have anything to do with Wal-Mart? They pay people slave wages, lock employees in, force small businesses out to close, etc., etc.

Jesus would not love big corporations, nor would he be a capitalist...(sorry, he'd be more of a socialist).
