A mayor in New Zealand has aroused a storm of protest after comparing himself to the trials and tribulations of Jesus Christ. Mayor Andrew Williams responded to charges that he had urinated on a tree by exclaiming: “two blokes got crucified this week(the other being a fellow named Jesus Christ) and both will most certainly rise from the dead to haunt some people.” Frankly, I do not understand why Mr. Williams is upset at being charged with urinating on a tree. Heck, here in America just about every day some politician or Wall Street type shits on us and is smiling all the way to the bank.
I have a hunch Jesus would not be upset at comments that he urinated on a tree given that in his day, that was quite normal. However, I just don’t think Williams is going to rise from the dead political area he now inhabits.
