Guardian Angels

 

Can anyone that understands the religious mind explain these pictures to me? I used to see these pictures all around my home and church when I was a kid. Are they telling me I can do whatever the fuck I want(like play around cliffs and walk over unsafe bridges) and not die cause I got a guardian angel? If I a child falls over a cliff and dies, does that just mean they had a angle that sucked? Why can't gawd just keep me from dieing if that's his will? Why does he need surrogates? Are guardian angels always blond chicks?

Where are the parents? Shouldn't the parents of these children be arrested for child endangerment and the children placed in foster care, instead of being used to promote religion?

Looks like the angel is

Looks like the angel is ready to push them off.

DS and Richard would be proud.

Good point, a good angel would be ready to catch them when they fall over. Looks like they'll die before she can catch them. Those wings don't look strong enough to move her around very quickly either.

You raise an interesting

You raise an interesting concept - could telling kids this shit encourage them not to refrain from dangerous, even reckless, behavior? If they think they can run across the street and their guardian angel will protect them they are likely to be hit by a car. I have to agree with George Carlin's comments on people believing in angels.

Guardian angels

     Didn't you hear, direct from the middle ages ( or modern day Iran)  10,000 angels can stand on the head of a pin.  No doubt about it or we burn you to a steak (ham, salami, pepperoni,or sausage) with A1 sauce;   hold the mayo!          I would rather have the guy with the .50 caliber sub-sionic long range sniper special, but only if he is trained by Canada's best the JSTF II  (rated best in the world by NATO & Janes'  Monthly)   Don't worry Yanks most US troops are now being trained by the JSTF II.

     JSTF II   (Joint Special Task Force    unit  II)   I  don't  know why but there never was a number one.
