The Separation of Church & Street, Part II

Lest you readers begin to think that I am somehow biased against those of other religions, let me assure you that I am an equal opportunity blogger. That is to say, I blog with equal attention to all weirdness, regardless of stream or denomination. A few weeks ago, I blogged about the very creeper JESUS vehicle (driven by the Saviour himself, apparently?) Today, friends, I bring you... THE MITZVAH TANK.



Parked on a busy city street corner, the Mitzvah Tank rang out with lovely Jew-tunes that I could not identify (klezmer?). Although no Lubavitchers were to be found, Chabad's presence was clear by, you know, its name emblazoned across the front bumper. (Do buses have bumpers?)
Although unphotographable from my angle, the side of the Tank read "The Moshiach is Coming - NOW!" which is somehow more than slightly reminiscent of that old bumper sticker, "Jesus is coming -- look busy!" My favorite part of the entire spectacle, though, is that simple line above the windshield, that reads, "Welcome Moschiach!" as though, upon his arrival on Earth, the Christ's first visitation location of choice will be a city bus.
