It’s no surprise that Christians are the best cherry pickers on the planet, but this takes it just a step too far – even into legendary levels of mind numbness.
The Bible prohibits many things that Christians do all the time (pre-marital s*x, divorce), and encourages many others that they rarely practice (compassion for the poor). These are usually rationalised in the mind in some way.
But Ghanaian artist Desmond Blackmore has taken this hypocrisy and double standards to a whole new level, even if he might not know it yet. It’s possible that instead of being a hypocrite he’s just ignorant, but that is something we cannot be sure of at this moment.
Speaking with NYDJ, D-Black spoke about his numerous body tattoos, numbering around 20. There is a perception in Ghana that tattoos denote a bad boy, or someone dabbling in satanic issues, so to reassure his followers D-Black noted that most of his tattoos are inspired by his love of the bible, and some are straight up bible verses.
Except if he loved the bible as much as he pretends he does here, he would have realised that the Bible actually forbids cutting up your body or making marks upon it. Leviticus 19:28 tells us bluntly that….
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord. (KJV)
Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord. (NIV)
So it really is an oxymoron, to tattoo verses of the book warning you not to tattoo yourself on yourself. We rule this to be the dumbest comment of the week.
PS: Read the bible a little, Christians.
