You can’t rest in my Jesus, it’s full

I was talking with a friend recently and she brought up the concept of resting in Jesus, which has something to do with easing your troubles by taking comfort in knowing that Jesus will take care of them for you. It’s a perfectly vacuous concept, of course, except I had never heard it called by that name. So my first response when I heard her say “resting in Jesus” was, and I kid you not:

“Oh, you mean like a tauntaun?”

I am:

  • A. Incredibly glad she’s not religious, because:
  • B. She got the Star Wars reference

I’m hard-pressed to conjure up another spur of the moment thought that’s quite as offensive as the thought of slitting open the belly of the Christ and resting inside his corpse.

    Is the title of your post a reference to the Robot Chicken Star Wars Special, in which Han cuts his tauntaun open, only to find someone already in it?

    No it’s not a reference, though that does sound hysterical!
