“Jesus Christ” is not blasphemy (no, really)

| »

Can’t argue with logic:

Chalkboard: “You know his name wasn’t really Jesus Christ, right? Jesus is just the Greek translation of Yeshua, which translates from Hebrew to Joshua. But his name wasn’t Josh Christ, either, since his parents weren’t Joseph and Mary Christ. So it’s really not blasphemy to say “Jesus Christ” because it’s not taking the right name in vain. Isn’t religion fun?”

I dunno about that, but taking it apart certainly is …
