A FROG that constantly changes colour is being worshipped as a GOD in India.

A FROG that constantly changes colour is being worshipped as a GOD in India. Hundreds of curious followers flock to Reji Kumar’s home every day to pray and ask for miracles.

Now one of the country’s top zoologists plans to study the rainbow frog. But Reji, 35, who keeps the creature in a glass bottle after finding it while out watering plants, is afraid it might CROAK first.

He said: “My one problem is that this frog does not appear to eat. I keep trying to feed it but it doesn’t eat anything. I don’t know what else to give it.”

The frog was a dazzling WHITE colour when Reji, from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, first spotted it.

Then it changed to YELLOW and had gone GREY by the time he got it home.

Lift worker Reji added: “By night the frog was dark yellow, and then it became transparent so you could see its internal organs.

"It seemed like a miracle to me that this frog had so many different coats. So now people come to see him and pray to him.”

Professor Oommen V. Oommen from India’s Kerala University, said it was not uncommon for animals to change colour.

He explained: “Frogs do change colour to scare away predators.

“But from what I have heard, the frog at Kumar’s place changes colour so frequently it is a bit unusual. I will collect it for study.”

I’m sorry, but how stupid do you have to be to go ask some frog for a miracle?

The frog has more wisdom and intelligence than the mainstream news media’s God & Messiah.

The frog will die, because there’s only so many times you can spray-paint one before it expires.

So, just want will happen when he tries to confiscate this god for study?

You mean Obambi is living there, too, in an alternate universe???

I notice he changes color daily, depending on what audience he is addressing!

Hey, I can change color from pasty white to bright red with just an hour in the midday sun without wearing sunblock. So worship me.

I usually have to lick the frog before it starts changing color like that.

Wasn’t there some sort of rumor in the 1970s about licking multi-colored toads and getting an LSD-type high?

Clearly in play here...

Hello, my baby,
hello my bonnie,
Hello my ragtime girl.
Send me a kiss by wire.
Baby, my heart’s on fire.
If you’ll refuse me
Honey, you’ll lose me,
Then you’ll be left alone.
Oh, baby, telephone
And tell me I’m your own….

The dummy can’t feed the frog-the frog seems to have managed quite well up to the point of capture on its own-he could just let it go.

That’s surprising, usually they only worship tasty things like cow, then starve. They must be totally hungry already, so Satan can just throw this easy one out

Not to mention one that seems on the verge of dying from starvation. How much penance do you have to do for killing a "god" even if your intentions were good?

Well, some just kiss vials of dead people's blood and flesh...

That said...

 

   The Bhagavad-Gita.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
Chapter XII
 
 
ARJUNA:


LORD! of the men who serve Thee—true in heart—

 
As God revealed; and of the men who serve,  
Worshipping Thee Unrevealed, Unbodied, far,  
Which take the better way of faith and life?  
 
KRISHNA:


Whoever serve Me—as I show Myself—

        5
Constantly true, in full devotion fixed,  
These hold I very holy. But who serve—  
Worshipping Me The One, The Invisible,  
The Unrevealed, Unnamed, Unthinkable,  
Uttermost, All-pervading, Highest, Sure—         10
Who thus adore Me, mastering their sense,  
Of one set mind to all, glad in all good,  
These blessed souls come unto Me.  
        Yet, hard  
The travail is for whoso bend their minds         15
To reach th’ Unmanifest. That viewless path  
Shall scarce be trod by man bearing his flesh!  
But whereso any doeth all his deeds,  
Renouncing self in Me, full of Me, fixed  
To serve only the Highest, night and day         20
Musing on Me—him will I swiftly lift  
Forth from life’s ocean of distress and death  
Whose soul clings fast to Me. Cling thou to Me!  
Clasp Me with heart and mind! so shalt thou dwell  
Surely with Me on high. But if thy thought         25
Droops from such height; if thou be’st weak to set  
Body and soul upon Me constantly,  
Despair not! give Me lower service! seek  
To read Me, worshipping with steadfast will;  
And, if thou canst not worship steadfastly,         30
Work for Me, toil in works pleasing to Me!  
For he that laboreth right for love of Me  
Shall finally attain! But, if in this  
Thy faint heart fails, bring Me thy failure! find  
Refuge in Me! let fruits of labor go,         35
Renouncing all for Me, with lowliest heart,  
So shalt thou come; for, though to know is more  
Than diligence, yet worship better is  
Than knowing, and renouncing better still  
Near to renunciation—very near—         40
Dwelleth Eternal Peace!  
        Who hateth nought  
Of all which lives, living himself benign,  
Compassionate, from arrogance exempt,  
Exempt from love of self, unchangeable         45
By good or ill; patient, contented, firm  
In faith, mastering himself, true to his word,  
Seeking Me, heart and soul; vowed unto Me,—  
That man I love! Who troubleth not his kind,  
And is not troubled by them; clear of wrath,         50
Living too high for gladness, grief, or fear,  
That man I love! Who, dwelling quiet-eyed,  
Stainless, serene, well-balanced, unperplexed,  
Working with Me, yet from all works detached,  
That man I love! Who, fixed in faith on Me,         55
Dotes upon none, scorns none; rejoices not,  
And grieves not, letting good and evil hap  
Light when it will, and when it will depart,  
That man I love! Who, unto friend and foe  
Keeping an equal heart, with equal mind         60
Bears shame and glory, with an equal peace  
Takes heat and cold, pleasure and pain; abides  
Quit of desires, hears praise or calumny  
In passionless restraint, unmoved by each,  
Linked by no ties to earth, steadfast in Me,         65
That man I love! But most of all I love  
Those happy ones to whom ’tis life to live  
In single fervid faith and love unseeing,  
Eating the blessèd Amrit of my Being!  
 
Here endeth Chapter XII. of the Bhagavad-Gîtâ,
        70
entitled “Bhakityôgô,” or “The Book of
 
the Religion of Faith”
 

 

 

PS: Satan, God, Angels and Demons, all works of man's imagination.

MyTwoCopperCoins said “Well, some just kiss vials of dead people’s blood and flesh...”

Hey look, the Indian guy comes along with an anti-Western, anti-white people (and this time anti-Catholic as well) post again when he feels embarrassed about something Indians are doing.

This is the same Indian guy who posts almost exclusively pro-Indian, anti-Pakistan stories, and is basically an Indian propagandist. Lives in Melbourne. Never posts anything pro-Australian though, proving what we all knew about the vast majority of immigrants, that even the basically good ones are totally loyal to their country of origin and ethnic group, and have little to no sense of identity with the country they came to for primarily monetary reasons.

Along the same lines as asking some unseen deity.

Well, to pose questions along monotheistic lines, is the frog divine, does the frog encompass both the divine and well, the amphibian, what part of the frog is divine (ask the French, and they’ll say the legs), if the frog is of earth, then are the colors the expression of the Divinity?

Questions, questions, perhaps he’s simply a chameleon with an identity crisis!

No, once again, it's not about the photo, it's about your anti-white, anti-Western intent, when confronted by something that embarrasses you about Indian people.
