Gladly Tacky

The lighted sign at the Lutheran Church of the Tacky Sentiment, just down the street from my house, currently declareth:

CROSS-EYED PEOPLE HAVE THE BEST VISION

This claim may seem highly dubious, until you realize that it's an example of Riddle-Me-Tacky. And once you understand what it's really trying to say (something akin to "Fix your eyes on Jesus" and "Know nothing except Christ and Him crucified", etc.), and it's actually kind of an encouraging thing to hear a Lutheran church say these days. Because, most of the time, you can get the impression that our church regards those who have eyes like the one pictured here as leaders with "true vision."

BTW, the title of this post is a riff on "Gladly the cross-eyed [cross I'd] bear." In case you missed the joke.
