Good Friday

I wonder why they call it that. It certainly wasn't too good for Jesus Christ. He spent the day sacrificing His life for us in a very unpleasant way. Not so good. It should be called Sad Friday. And why did he have to die this way? Beaten, pierced by a sword, hanging on a cross by nails? Was it because when he came back from the dead, it was so unbelievable. If it happened today, I should think a nice open traumatic brain injury would make me a true believer. Sad Friday should be the new name.

I think technically "Good Friday" is from "God's Friday." But Sad Friday would be a better name in this day and age to get the message across.
