Jesus drives a Honda Civic


With 18% of the vote, the Honda Civic was chosen as the vehicle that Jesus would most likely drive in my recent poll. Obviously, this was meant to be a joke, but I am still a bit surprised by this. I expected the Prius (12%) or Smart Car (15%) or Segway (15%) to win, since these are all very fuel efficient. But the non-hybrid Civic won. This is fine with me, since my wife and I drive a 2000 silver Honda Civic, which was given to us by her family (similar to the one in the picture).

The post that got this all started was a bit controversial. The notion that Jesus would drive a car was apparently less humorous and more offensive. My apologies for those who did not find much humor in this. Unfortunately, no one got the joke-within-the-joke when I put the Sabra Gilboa on the list. Sabra (or Autocars Co. Ltd.) was the only Israeli car manufacturer. It’s the car company of the Holy Land!

There's been a lot of stories lately that owning and driving a Prius, over the lifetime of a normal car, ends up being more expensive and no less damaging to the environment than a high-efficiency subcompact car of similar size and power. Unfortunately, I read this a few weeks back and for the life of me can't find any links to back me up, so feel free to be skeptical, but I do remember raising my eyebrows over it.

I must say I'm a little disappointed by the outcome of this poll. I had the perfect image in my head of Jesus delivering the Sermon on the Mount while swaying back and forth on his Segway. I mean really people! :)

Well now, I missed the poll, but I can't believe the Honda Accord didn't win.

Acts 1:14: These all continued with one accord....
