No source given, the only references I can find on google look very dodgy.

Re: Have you heard the Good News?

Isn’t that the guy who said;

Do anything you want, anything! Rape, pillage, murder, poorly worded EF posts, etc. And that will be all forgiven?

Not my kinda guy. I prefer the chocolate bunny.

Neither.

You are referring to the act, either while in progress or from hindsight, whereas OP refers to the resulting state.

Think of
- he is marrying (your suggestion)
- he has married (your suggestion)
- he is married (OP's words)

Interesting- thanks! So completely correct if a bit archaic.

I'm not a native English speaker and even for me "He is risen" makes sense.

And "grammatical"?

Not really. But I hope you enjoyed your chocolate. (Presumably not from... Läderach)

Poorly worded EF posts are never forgiven.

Not archaic at all. For example, if you're making bread, you could quite well exclaim "My dough is risen". Or living by the sea "The tide is risen". To which someone may reply in agreement, "Your dough is risen indeed"/"The tide is risen indeed"]

On the dough note, my dough hasn't risen yet , it is lazy.
