You know, in a very real sense, if Jesus were here today, faced with global financial meltdown and other topical newspaper headlines, he would, I think, wear a chunky knitted cardigan. Most sensible folk would do the same.
Mr Key, on the other hand, is going to barricade himself inside Fort Hoity. Or possibly Fort Toity.
I find that “The Christ” has little or nothing of relevance to the current predicament… if only we had a more contemporary figure to turn to for advice and solace? Perhaps a writer of pamphlets, rather than a mythical messiah type-figure in the tradition of Isis such as Jesus.
Mr Key, I think you should pitch this concept to Radio 4.
“Fort for the day” should encourage perspectives from minority religions.
It should be a spiritual or moralistic monologue delivered every week-day at approximately breakfast-time by a cultist, monomaniac or delusional loon who has barricaded himself into a fort provided just for this purpose.
I’m more of a bunker man myself…
Fort and bunker living has improved greatly now that most major supermarkets deliver to the portcullis/3-foot-thick-cast-iron-door…
I notice, on closer inspection, that your chosen refuge is lacking a portcullis and I fear for your safety…
OSM : Insufficiently barricaded… it’s the story of my life.
