The football season has dwindled down to its final game: Next Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday. Most americans will spend the morning in their favourite house of worship, before solemnly settling down to four to six hours of lust, greed, gluttony, and over indulgence. But the mere fact that we seek the good lord's blessings before hand is what makes us a greater country than, say, a country run by Muslim extremists, who hmmm.....also seek the lord's blessing before engaging in any activity.
But.ummm....they have the wrong deity, so that makes us better. Right?
In the darkest days of the Civil War – a group of ministers went to see President Lincoln in the White House. The North was not doing well at the time.
One of the ministers asked Mr. Lincoln, "Is God on our side?"
The President replied:
"The question is not whether God is on our side. The question is whether we are on God's side."
Anyway, the end of the football season leaves a one day gap in our blog. Any individual who thinks they have something interesting to say, send us an email and we will give you a shot. Who knows, you may achieve the fame and fortune, not to mention the public adulation and the blogging groupies that have so enriched our life the past few years.
As long as you follow our simple rules, the blog will be yours on Sunday, to say and do what you want.
See You In Court, where our cross examinations often leaves the prosecution seeking Divine intervention.
