Fun Friday: Prayers Answered for Smokin’ Hot Wife & Circumcision Ban Banned

As I expected — though perhaps not this quickly — San Francisco’s proposed ballot measure banning circumcision has been, ahem, nipped in the bud. On a serious note, the debate over the pros and cons of circumcision, both medically and religiously, continues… with no end in sight.

And now for something really fun:

Thanking God for that smokin’ hot wife (GetReligion)

Hey Nicole!! I trust you’re feeling refreshed following your, I’m sure thoroughly well-deserved hiatus. As for the post, what a load of sanctimonious crap!(Lovely language for a devout and passionate Christian, hey, lol!!). In all seriousness, though it to me, it demonstrates all that’s, for want of a better word, wrong, with fundametalism. G-D THE MAGICIAN WHO GRANTS ANYTHNG MAN WANTS!!, and also in our consumeristic world. To the contrary, to me,I believe the exact opposite is true. That Christ, Buddha, Mohammed, Allah etc, call us to be modest in our living, so we can reduce our impact on our carbon footprint, and thus help, and reach out to, the poor. As one of the Gospels says”Whatver you did for the least of these(i.e the poor, the marginalised, refugees etc) you did for me”. All the best, otherwise, Nicole, and richest blessings. flipperthedolphin.
