Apocryphote of the Day: 9-10-08

Jesus said to the disciples, "Disciples, do not cast pearls before swine, for the swine can do nothing with them. Do not impart wisdom to the person who does not desire it, for wisdom is more precious than pearls and whoever rejects wisdom is worse than a pig."

Ahmad ibn Hanbal, al-Zuhd, p. 144 (no. 477) (The Muslim Jesus)

Commentary: My response to the media's response to the Republicans' response to Obama's response to Palin.

My translation says: “Do not cast lipstick before swine, for the swine can do nothing with it.” Sorry—couldn’t resist.

I love this Muslim Jesus. He seems real straight forward, even when he's speaking in a parable.
