Lazy Idolatry!

Okay, this was GREAT! At least, i think so. In a discussion on why we shouldn't put up christmas trees, some people refer to Jeremiah 10:3-5. In a cursory reading, one would think these verses specifically prohibit exactly that; reading just a bit more shows that isn't the subject after all. The prohibition is on making idols. Then someone threw in a comment that was hilarious! He said:

...having a Christmas tree is something akin to "Lazy Idolatry"! It's like, "Let's don't bother with all the intensive labor in making this thing look like a deity, let's just decorate it and get it over with!"
