Religion and spirituality in the shadow of Pikes Peak

Wednesday, June 28, 2006


Religion can be a fascinating and, for many, beautiful thing. Andsometimes, things just get silly.

While researching one religious product (the "Jesus Pan," which bakes an image of Jesus on toast, pancakes, you name it -- look for the story July 8), I came across a Web site dedicated to the veneration of toast.

It's called the Toast Bible, and includes a full-blown creation story: "On the second day," it reads, "God created condiments."

The highlight may be the 10 Commandments of toast. Commandment No. 5 reads "thou shalt eat toast for breakfast or for lunch, but not for dinner. Too much of a good thing is sinful." No. 7 says "thou shalt not stick a fork in a toaster, or suffer God's wrath."
