You Know You’re in Texas When . . .

By Mark D. Roberts | Saturday, November 10, 2007

While driving down the road a couple of weeks ago I saw this on the back of a car. Now in California lots of Christians have an ichthus (Greek for fish) on their bumpers. And some anti-Christians have fishes celebrating Darwin. But I never saw a school of ichthuses before I moved to Texas.

    LOL. I wonder if one of their children or grandchildren was not a believer if they’d purposely omit a fish for that person?

    I’ve seen these schools of Christian fish on cars in west Michigan, too, btw.

    Shouldn’t it be “ichtusi or ichtui” (just kidding) LOL… Ah, yes, Pastor Roberts, when living in CA I never saw this on a bumper (yet I’ve seen many things I would rather not have seen)…BUT since moving to Georgia this past summer I’ve seen several cars sporting just this design.

    With all those fish, crosses and Jesus on that car, seems like too much pressure for the driver to drive safely, within the traffic laws and without ever getting mad enough to swear or use hand signals!

    A family in our church had a full-sized van with 2 large and 7 small fish - truly a school, since they also homeschooled their children. They moved to Colorado Springs, but gave the van to one of the pastors before leaving. At the time, he had just 2 kids, but they soon adopted several children … 5 of them.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
