Highway of Holiness

Light the Highway is a group of people who apparently think that I-35, which runs from Laredo, TX to Minneapolis, MN, is God’s chosen interstate, because Isaiah 35:8 reads:

And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it.

(I-35, Isaiah 35. Get it?)

It’s unclear to me whether this is a Poe or not, but reading that site is like being beaten over the head with a stick made of frozen crazy.

OTOH, they may be onto something: the 495th line of Isaiah is 26:19, which reads:

But your dead will live; their bodies will rise. You who dwell in the dust, wake up and shout for joy. Your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead.

which sounds a lot like I-495 (the Washington Beltway) to me.

  1. Yeah, anybody who thinks I-35 is God’s highway needs some serious help. I’ve spent far too much time on I-35.

  2. That seems to be the attitude in Austin as well. And wasn’t the bridge in Minnesota that collapsed also on I-35?

  3. Funny that, because many who share similar opinions also look upon I-35 as a Hellmouth since I believe it’s part of the highway system identified as a prime candidate for the Mexico-to-US trucking route discussed when NAFTA was passed and they don’t want to “enable teh illegalz”.

    I’ll enjoy watching the heads go assplodey.

    That’s the old paradigm, which was discarded when someone published a map of the Mexico-to-Canada superhighway where I-35 had a yellow glow around it. This was taken by the theofellating crowd to represent a divine glow, and by the drunken snark contingent to represent piss leaking from a million rest stops.

  5. I totally believe in it. The crazy church that CNN is talking about, I happy attend. While not every one prays the exact way those ppl did. I all pray just as strong. I love my Jesus and I don’t see why I-35 couldn’t be the “highway of holiness”??
