> I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think
> Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think
> people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around,

> Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that

> I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot

> In light of recent events–terrorists attacks, school

> Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible

> Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they

> We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said

> Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why

> Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it

> Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the

>
> Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

>
>
> Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like

>
> Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through

>
> Are you laughing yet?

>
> Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many

> Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us

> Pass it on if you think it has merit.

> If not, then just discard it. No one will know you did. But, if you
