The importance of education

Posted by admin     Category: Religious

I read an interesting article on the Jewish people and why they became bankers and merchants instead of remaining farmers.

The gist of the article is that unlike popular belief, the Jews did not abandon farming because, at certain points in history, they were not allowed to own land. Basically, because of the demise of their temple in 70 AD their religion evolved from relying on just a few religious leaders to tell them how to act, to their actually being spread out across a lot of geographic locales and because of this, they evolved into fathers sending their children to school so that they could read their written Torah.

It is an interesting theory and you can read the whole article here if you wish: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2013/04/the-chosen-few-a-new-explanation-of-jewish-success.html

If this theory is correct, it certainly substantiates the value of education with almost 2000 years of “proof.”

I Don’t Care

Posted by admin     Category: Anti Americans, Religious
Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not
started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001?
Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered
that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from our nation's
capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania?
Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or
crushing death that day, or didn't they?
And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was 'desecrated'
when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet?...Well, I
don't. I don't care at all.
I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for
incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.
I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring
about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia
I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for chopping off
Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.
I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Iraq come out
and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in
mosques.
I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of
nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide .
I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First
Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the
United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an Iraqi
terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.
When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move
because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I don't
care.
When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed
'special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that
his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your
heart of hearts: I don't care.
And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled
'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and-you
guessed it-I don't care!!
If you don't agree, with the above then please don't complain when more atrocities
committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:
'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference
in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem' -- Ronald
Reagan
One last thought for the day:
In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the Anti-American sentiment
and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony
Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his
Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said: 'A simple
way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in.. And how many
want out.'
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

Tailgating Christian Woman

Posted by admin     Category: Religious

A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and make-up.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up.

He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.


He said, ‘
I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him.’ I noticed the WhatWould Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the Choose Life’ license plate holder, the Follow Me to Sunday-School bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk; naturally…I assumed you had stolen the car.’
