I once had a student whose daughter, in year, went from being deep into SpongeBob SquarePants to being deep into Jesus. She wanted a Jesus birthday party . . . with Jesus cake, Jesus candles, Jesus napkins, Jesus balloons, and, “Mom, can we have a Jesus piñata?”
No one is more tired than I am of seeing Jesus turned into a piñata for hacked-off people to hack away at to their hearts’ delight. But certain clichés about Jesus are piñata worthy — and I give fair warning: I have just now become a hacker."
