The sin of Ham


What a story.
.
Imagine naming your son Ham - may as well call him Pig - I actually kind of like Pig better. Anyway, my friend Angela (pronounced in the United States: 'angle-ah'), who lives someplace in the Canadian wilderness, is reading the Bible and was perplexed by the sin of Ham as recorded in the book of Genesis. I added my two cents, attempting to explain what I thought the big deal was when he pulled his dad's pants down, but I held back a little. Why? Because I am going to paint it - the sin of Ham that is. I see it in my head - it so has to be painted. I can't show it here when it is finished because it will involve nudity - so I will have to re-open "Up Your Street" as my real art blog. I can show it there.

  6. I have been thinking about Ham, and I thought well geese if his mother would have treated him with a little more respect maybe then maybe he wouldn't have turned out so badly. "Compassion first" Terry.

    I found this video of his Ham's Dear sweet Mother calling for him. Is it any wonder why he was so angry?
    Besides his Father would say things like "God talks to me." How healthy could this family have been? ;)
