They really must hate feeling like little Hitlers.. So I’m in Facebook jail again for 3 days. I shared a picture a friend sent me. I’m guessing the sort of people who would turn people in for playing in a park or giving someone a haircut don’t like, not even a little bit, that cringe-twinge..
Pay Attention Now.. Dig up ancient injustice and dwell on it. Identify “villains” who were operating under the moral and legal standards of their day. Use it to crucify, blacklist, and terminate the innocent grandchildren of those “villains” and reward people who were never the victims of those “villains.” If you want to get ahead..
Are you a free thinker? Think again.. I have a friend on Facebook who obviously reads a great deal of history, and he posts some terribly challenging facts from time to time.

Nine Truths, One Stinking Falsehood.. My mother was fond of teaching us the devil tells us enough truth to get us to swallow huge lies whole. Mom’s ratio was nine truths to one falsehood. I think the Beth Moore ratio is more like 7 to 3, with a fair number of pastoral illustrations harking back..
You mean a unisex world is a little confused? Picture the setting. You are one of perhaps a dozen men standing in a hot room full of two or three hundred hot women in hot yoga outfits contorting themselves in a kind of body poetry that all but the absolutely bloodless would consider at least..
