Autism Can Be ‘Cured’… You Just Have to Cast out the Demons…

Again, this is what happens when dimwittery meets sacred text without any intervening instruction:

A controversial religious group that claims it can cure autism “by driving out demons” is set to take to the streets of Barcelona this weekend. A religious group is staging several “spirituality seminars” this weekend in Barcelona, claiming that its members – through Jesus – can heal people with a variety of conditions, including autism. The Last Reformation, an evangelical Christian group founded in Denmark by Torben Sondergaard, arrived in Spain on Friday for a series of “spirituality seminars”. The group has already seen protests staged against it ahead of seminars planned for Dublin, Ireland, where autism campaigners have denounced the group’s members for claiming that they have “driven out the demons” of those with autism.

Ugh.

Israel in the Wilderness: It Wasn’t Moses Who Led Them…

It was FedEx.  For only FedEx would follow an absurdly circuitous route like the one the Israelites followed and my printer is following.

My printer died of old age so I ordered a replacement.  Turns out, the replacement comes from the Dell warehouse in Nashville.  2.5 hours down the road.  Nonetheless… well, see for yourself:

Yes, it was FedEx that led Israel through the wilderness, not Moses.

Quote of the Day

“Our Lord God always gives more than we ask for. If we ask properly for a piece of bread he gives us a whole acre. I prayed God to let my Katy live, and he gives her a good year in addition. But I think a really bad time will follow because we’re too wicked and are introducing heresies among ourselves.” — Martin Luther

Ah Luther, the best thing about you is your ‘the glass is half empty’ attitude.
