A Fatwa I Can Agree With?

A Muslim cleric in Sudan has issued a Fatwa urging people to boycott Valentine's Day.  About time!  Yes, I know this requires a word of explanation . . .  This has nothing to do with my wife (who is as wonderful as wonderful can be).   This has nothing to do with mocking romance (yes, I know, I'm a German).  Growing up in a retail business, every year I heard salesmen laugh about how sappy people get during certain holidays (Valentine's Day was chief among them), and how easy it was to manipulate the guilty into buying something they didn't really want, and might not be able to afford.  On an important level, Valentine's Day is not about love and romance, its about making a buck--not that there's anything wrong with that.  Click here: Sudan clerics urge Valentine's Day boycott | Oddly Enough | Reuters

Another Pentecostal Pastor (ironically, from "Catch the Fire Ministries") "hears" from God, and then blames Australia's wildfires on that nation's abortion policies.  That is always helpful in the midst of a crisis.  Click here: Pastor's abortion dream inflames bushfire tragedy |

This apology won't quite cut it. "We're sorry our fireworks set fire to your multi-million dollar high-rise hotel.  We won't do it again."  Be sure to check out the photos.  Absolutely amazing. Click here: Chinese TV station sorry for accidentally burning down brand-new luxury hotel | Mail Online

One of the guys I work with has the best definition for Valentine's Day. His take: It is just another opportunity to fail.

God: that His conditional protection has been removed from the nation of Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of innocent children in the womb".

Well that settles it, we in the United States are screwed as we abort more babies then any other country.

Reformed Christians are readers. Well of course what else is there that is going to help us understand Theology and God's Word? TV is ok from time, to time but nothing beats a good book. Besides now days you have to pay either satellite or cable just to get TV. I protest that I do not like paying to watch TV, even though I do.
