Thread Name: PLEASE, defend BANJOS !!!
Subject: RE: PLEASE, defend BANJOS !!!
GUEST (of 10:27 a.m) said, in part:

GOD created the banjo and HIMSELF decreed 'Thou shalt not have graven images'- it couldn't be worshiped

Ah, but an image is a visual representation of something which exists, either in reality or imagination.

A banjo is not an image of anything, but an object in its own right. Therefore we can go ahead and worship it all we want.
