It's a joke.
One of the key features of internet culture regardless of a site or its format is how jokes and memes spread and "take" which leads me to my more important point.
Use of figurative language part 1: irony and humor
When people make ironic references while cracking a joke (whoa, you raised that question from the dead (nobody touched it for three years! -- wow, that's necromancy) they are using figurative language for humorous intent.
Use of figurative language part 2: insults
When someone is angry with me and calls me a son of a b***h, it is a figurative pejorative term, not a literal assertion that I am somehow begotten of a canine. (Pro Tip: the genetic material is not compatible).
Assigning literal meaning to figurative speech
If you do that with humorous intent, goodonya. If you are going to get serious about trying to assert that figurative language is improper and only literal meanings and definitions apply, then the joke's on you when using the internet as a medium of communication. Welcome to the Internet, spreading (fill in the blank_____) at the speed of electricity for about 30 years.
To quote Sergeant Helka in Stripes
Lighten up. We all attract more people to our witness or experience with Christ, and will attract more people to our PoV or our belief, by using a light touch when using the internet as the medium of communication. Even though this site is by its nature more academic, the simple act of sharing how we believe can be a form of evangelization (indirectly) or at least good will.
Jesus wept, sure, but being human, He also laughed. I don't need scripture to tell me so to believe that. All I have to know is that He was among us in human form for 30+ years, and to be frank with you, we can be (unintentionally) hilarious and humorous simply by being ourselves. He loves us anyway.
