Jesus Loves You?

JesusI should really stop falling from one Catalan surprise into another. I ought to have learned to look at things with a Catalan eye by now, and not to generalise. But then, I can’t help coming across things every now and then, and think to myself: “how Catalan!” There are particular traits of behaviour and ways of thinking which I believe are certainly culturally determined, indeed, Volkseigen.

A sticker was pasted on this rubbish container in my street, which I noticed as I made my way to the metrostation. It said: “Jesus era antisistema”, “Jesus was anti-system”. Even though I don’t believe it’s Catalan, but Spanish, I couldn’t help thinking to myself… well, you know.

Jesus loves you? Pfah, perhaps in another country. Here Jesus is Catalan, and against the system.
