God Sends Forth the Naked Menace

The Lord works in ways that are hard to understand. His communications with mere mortals like ourselves can open our minds to the great mysteries of the universe or enlighten us with some portion of supreme cosmic realization. But sometimes he just tells one of us to walk around naked.

Shafiq Mohamed was arrested for walking naked down the street of Thibodaux, Louisiana, after police responded to an obscenity complaint at about 2am on Thursday morning.

Mohamed reportedly explained to the officers that 'America raped him' and that God had told him to walk around naked in order to save his soul.

He was taken into custody, where he was charged with obscenity and was awaiting bail.

This sounds a lot like a practical joke on the part of the Almighty. Maybe he was just trying to see if the guy would really do it. Whatever the case, it demonstrates that God can have a nasty sense of humor, since winding up in jail naked can't be a good thing.

In addition, England was recently struck by naked yoga, so I guess that means the Hindu gods are getting on the action as well. There's so far no word on whether or not they've taken an interest in the Afghan war, but this particular naked protester sounded pretty sure of herself.

A naked woman stopped traffic near the Houses of Parliament yesterday, by clambering on to a black cab for a five-minute ‘yoga protest’.

She yelled ‘Troops out of Afghanistan’, as the cabbie tried to shift her and tourists looked on.

So could all this nudity be a sign of the Apocalypse or something? Probably not. But it could mean that deities of whatever stripe appreciate a free show.

You never know, he might have grabbed them and stashed them in a drawer somewhere. Maybe he's got a whole collection - you know how certain items of clothing seem to disappear in the wash?

This actually has precedence in the Old Testament. God told Ezekiel to buy a loin cloth, bury it next to the Euphrates, then dig it up later and wear it around the settlements. It was full of holes and his genitals showed through. The Hebrew for genitals in this context is the same as "shame." (Iwwer) The idea being, the people who saw Ezekiel's genitals also got the prophetic message that God was ashamed of them for abandoning his ways in Babylon.

But for real Jerry Springer prophecy, read Hosea.

W00T!!!

I think that without photos, this thread offers nothing to the serious spiritual seeker...

Let us judge shame by the yardstick of no-shows!
