To the Daily:
Daniel Gold’s cartoon is such a pitiful commentary to see for one of Christianity’s holiest times (Weekend of Worship, 04/02/2010). Remembering that Jesus Christ died on a cross and rose to life offering the gift of eternal life to those who believe in him, comparing Good Friday and the story of redemption with Hash Bash and the story of human depravity and self-worship, is an offensive comparison. Calling it a weekend of worship and making the connection between worshipping God on Good Friday and worshipping something other than God for the so-called great Hash Bash Saturday, through a play on words, comes across as a cheap hit at something and Someone many of us hold as sacred. Jesus died for the sins of the world — and what happens during Hash Bash proves that the world needs to be saved.
