Note the real barbed wire above the crown of thorns. The Christians are getting creative.

"Ya get me" is quite popular slang locally, as heard in the oeuvre of Toxteth's most famous skinny rapper Riuven. Listen to Tha LIV for a citation. Don't know how widespread it is....

Oh my word, now this takes me back to an art project I did at school ..... I went to a catholic girls grammar school (I passed the 11+ but came from a very working class background) ..... my particular bit of art had God depicted as Marx and Christ as Che Guevara .... the adoring crowds were crowds of revolutionaries ..... I nearly got away with it but one of the nuns cottoned on .... too late, I got an A at 'O' Level :) ..... still think that there is an element of christianity and Islam that reflects a bit of Marxism ....

I can picture you doing that Maggie D. I'm pretty sure this graffiti is new - I'm wondering who did it now...

We've had a fair bit of christian street graffiti around our area (S.E. London) the 'Ya get me' tag is as far as I know just another way of saying 'you know what I mean' :)

Oh really? It's the first time I've seen Christian graffiti.

I know what "Ya get me" means, I just wasn't quite sure whether it was quite local to us. Having said that, I was at a meeting with someone from London a while back and he kept saying it every other sentence, like a tic, so I should have realised it wasn't Liverpool slang.

We have had christian and islamic graffiti appearing around the area for a while, nothing particularly artistic though ....

Heh - it's a matter of debate whether or not that's Xian graffitti - after all, the churches don't like Liberation Theology for the same reasons that bosses everywhere don't like rights for the proles...

I think it's pretty clearly Christian iconography, whether or not it emanates from a church is debatable.
