Frenetic Friday


It is hot here, very hot, and unfortunately not much has come my way that has caught my eye but, perservering, here is something by James White and IV His Son 

With Scientology in the news again because of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce it seems that Louis Farrakhan head of the Nation of Islam (NOI) is integrating Scientology into the NOI’s theology.  Read it here.
And speaking of NOI, Fred Butler of Hip and Thigh did an excellent introductory study of Islam you can find it here. 
And in other parts of the US it seems that you can’t hold bible studies in your house in Phoenix Arizona.  And because of that a pastor has been sent to jail.  Here is a video by the pastor where he explains what has happened.  
And now we are going to fly all the across the country to Columbia Pennsylvania where it seems you can’t give discounts on meals if you’re a church goer.  Seems a year ago the husband and wife owners of a restaurant offered a 10% discount on people who gave their bulletin to their waitress after church.  This didn’t sit well with an eighty year old athest who doesn’t even eat at the restaurant  so he went to the Pennsylvania Human Relation Commision and filed a complaint.  He said that this wasn’t out of spite: 
“I did this not out of spite, but out of a feeling against the prevailing self-righteousness that stems from religion, particularly in Lancaster County,” he told the York Daily Record. “I don’t consider it an earthshaking affair, but in this area in particular, we seem to have so many self-righteous religious people, so it just annoys me.”   
Right that isn’t spite at all, it’s just petty annoyance that is so much better.  
That’s it for now enjoy the weekend.
