Today is the day that Christians commemorate the death of Jesus. So why do they call it “Good Friday?”

So, i looked it up….seems like something got lost in translation over the centuries ? From wiki:
Here is a good explainer from slate no less. I’ve always been taught the reason in the first part of the article but the second half goes into the language issues Denise posted.
BTW what a lovely picture is that your prom picture or was that from one of your weddings, LOL!
I thought it was the Official TCH Easter Bunny ? 😉
Last night someone on Twitter thought it would be funny to tweet creepy clown pictures.
Some things can’t be unseen.
Very true! That picture should come with an eye bleach warning. Although Klown posts many pictures that warrant such warning.
Was wondering why #morningjoe was trending this morning……from the left leaning NJ…..
Personally, I’m happy for the Clintons, Yay for Grandmas ! No matter who you are….! The left does have a bad case of the Glees for the wrong reasons, as you’ll see in the video in the NJ clip where NYT’s guy says this will help soften and humanize Hillary…..ugh, did he mean she’s hard and inhuman now? Not very nice of him.
Ah memories. A small taste of the tsunami of misogyny that will engulf us all if HRC runs again.
myiq did predict the left and the right nutters will have a ball with this, but was happy to see even Twitchy through cold water on the right’s wingnuts.
Sigh. The “Dymoslurists; are busy again. Opposing their candidates is never a political decision. It’s gotta be a failure of character. Labels. So convenient when one is too inept to understand issues.
COINING PHRASE ALERT: “Dymoslurist” = Person who’d rather make up nasty label for despised political opponent instead of dealing with the truth.
Saw that this morning. He was pretty excited about how it would help Hillary.
7.5 is a pretty good shaker:
As we ponder the scriptures on the meaning of “Good” Friday, I bring you the Scriptures of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber who had a pretty good idea how Jesus spent Holy Thursday (the first Holy Communion)….one of my favorite scenes in all moviedom…….after the Last Supper, Ted Neeley as Christ questions the Lord about how he got into this mess.
Thank you. No more words needed.
I had a few more…. ❤

This is an interesting tidbit on the IRS scandal. Apparently some of the schemers hang out on a blog hosted by UC Irvine. Klown I may have found you a new playground!
Black Friday was already taken. 🙂
and then he said.
and they’re all on Obamacaid.
I used ti get paid every other Friday – they were called “Good Friday”. The weeks with no paycheck were “Passover”.
I got paid weakly.
