The Holy Tomato

Richard Perry/NYTimes

This photo was running on the NYTimes.com homepage with the caption "Faith Nights, a spiritual twist on Frisbee Nights and Bat Days, are becoming popular ballpark promotions."

I didn't know that tomatoes and pickles were divinities. The things you can learn on these here internets.

I think VeggieTales are a Christian thing, tho.

As serious as a side of brussel sprouts, my friend.

They're pretty damn funny, actually. And fundies hate them because they aren't all Jesus-in-you-face-yer-going-to-hell-on-a-shishkabob. They adapt a lot of familier OT stories (Daniel & the Lion Kitties, etc.) or do stories about simple ethical issues with only minor bible usuage with decent dialogue and occasionally hysterical original songs.

They're Christian, but in a good way. Never the elast bit hateful or exclusionist. My kids love 'em. My favorite is "King George and the Ducky" a reinterpretation of the David and Bathsheba story!

Oh...and that's not a pickle...that's a cucmber.

Larry the Cucumber, mild mannered alter-ego of tht crusading caped vegitable-Larry Boy (with super, suction ears)

Yes, I know, I really do need to get out more...

The sacred pickle?

Is that what the boyz are calling it these days?

Okay, I'll chalk this one up to what I call really, really bad caption writing.

But still, vegetables doing bible stories? sounds subversive to me.

VeggiTales aren't that bad, my former boss used to sing VT songs at work. Got strange looks from the customers.

I'll take you guy's word for it.

I'm not against guys dressed up like giant vegetables- after all, they are festive- but I'd prefer they tell other tales.
