There has been a great disturbance in the (Washington) Post.

I am ashamed by how hard I laughed at this.

Well, not that ashamed, because I'm still laughing.

By this association, you insult all decent, hardworking, rapaciously totalitarian Sith Lords, everywhere.

Amen, Dan.

As much as I see the resemblance, I can't but help think of Ephesians 4:29

Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.

I am an editor for Christian.com which is a social network dedicated to the christian community. As I look through your web site I feel a collaboration is at hand. I would be inclined to acknowledge your website offering it to our users as I'm sure our Christian reformed audience would benefit from what your site has to offer. I look forward to your thoughts or questions regarding the matter.

I found your site as recommended by Elder White. Listen, before someone dismisses me as one who needs to lighten up, get a sense of humor, etc. Please think about the following thru the lens of scripture. My flesh does find this picture comparison humorous. I have to repent of that fleshly desire to tear down and make fun (at the expense of another) of Ms. Thomas. Let me ask you, when you walk up to her to declare the glory of God and call her to repentance, would you start the conversation with a statement reminding her how unattractive she is, that she reminds you of the star wars guy? The obvious answer is no. How does Our God want us to relate to those who are lost?

Eric --

My thanks for your eye to the lost.

My opinion is that the comparison is more apt due to her political comments than her actual physical appearance. This is more political satire than simply school-yard mocking.

I respect your conscience in the matter, and your approach to the issue. I'm going to disagree with you on this one.

archshrk said...

Frank, how can this be anything but a comparison of her actual physical appearance? You only provided two unflattering images and challenged the reader to make a comparison.

There are no links or references to political comments for any reader who is unfamiliar with Helen Thomas to think this was anything but mocking her appearance.

As for any political comparisons, I'm not sure I see the resemblance.

Frank Turk said...

Why would I even think about Helen Thomas except for her vile remarks about the people in Israel? As a current event, are her remarks that obscure?

Does she actually look like Palpatine? Sure - a little. But the real resemblence is in their dark political outlook.

Everyone else gets the last word on this. I'm pretty much over it.
