Down at Bubby J’s

Worst Church/Graphic design/Architecture

More for the name and the sign than the building, although the church itself is no oil painting. Also to take a little pressure off The Uniting Church in Mt Lawley which has been taking the brunt of Worst comments lately. If there’s an Infant Jesus, why haven’t I seen The Teenage Jesus Church for the Spotty and Surly?

    I have always found the crucifix to be a fairly brutal symbol for an institution whose message purports to be peace and love. But to call the place the “Infant” Jesus Catholic Church and then put a crucifix next to it seems wrong somehow.
    Also have you noticed that the placement of the three stars around the cross makes it look like a bearded man. Could this be a picture of God? Finally proof of his existence!

    Yes it is rubbing it in Bubby J’s face a little the whole execution stuff. It must make it hard for him to concentrate on changing pureed apple into wine.

    I think the iconography of the sign is rather confusing. Why for instance are the Southern Cross stars five pointers and the ones dangling on the cross like earrings, the six pointed Stars o’ David?
    Does the one on the ground under the cross symbolise the rise of Christianity out of the oppression of the Jews?
    Does the strange angle of the shadow of the crucifix in opposition to the light from full moon denote the miracle powers of God?
    Is the threatening shadow of the crucifix reaching out to touch the name of the infant Jesus foreshadow the horrible death that was to befall him and thus render it unlikely for him to have chosen any other career over messiah?
    Am I reading too much into it?
    I don’t think any of these questions are likely to be answered by actually attending the church services unless you happen to go to the one in Italian at 11.30.
