14 Jul 2003 What Would Jesus Drive…?
…a large SUV, says the Sport Utility Vehicle Owners of America in a story by Anna Bakalis in the July 14 Washington Times.
The group is poking fun at an environmentalist campaign that seemingly purports to speak for our Lord by running ads that ask “middle-age Jesus Rivera” why he bought his 1995 SUV.
My husband, David, wonders if an SUV would have been big enough for the original Jesus, who had 12 disciples travelling with him and a need to carry carpenter’s tools. He’d also want extra space to pick up anyone in need on the roadside.
Possibly, theologically speaking, the current crop of SUVs aren’t quite big enough.
