    I'm not much of a Christian, but I know lots of folks here are. This was funny:

    I subscribe to The Weekly Standard, and sometimes I read it online because I put the Big Mutha in gear on Sundays and get gone. This appeared:

    In the late 1990s, Southern Baptists
    were caught up in a highly publicized
    debate on the proper relationship
    between men and women. This
    prompted a reporter for the New York
    Times—Mike won’t divulge the name—
    to call and ask why the Baptists were
    making such fools of themselves.
    “Well,” Mike said, “it says in Ephesians,
    chapter 5, verse 22 . . . ” (the
    passage says, “Wives, submit yourselves
    unto your own husbands”). The
    reporter stopped him with, “Who’s the
    author of that? Who wrote it? Who
    published it?” At that point, “I realized
    I’d have to start at the beginning,”
    Mike says.
    It was written by Fred Barnes.......Now, even I, as little as I know about The Bible, could have done better than that reporter!

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    If there is no link then dont post it. Either source it, or we dont want to see it.

    There is no rule about links when quoting something from email. Trucker don't sweat it, you did right. Sonna keeps forgetting that he's not a mod anymore. :-)

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    It isn't about being a mod, it's about him posting a story or part of one then not linking to the entire thing.

    He also forgets that he made my ignore list after reading only ONE of his posts......so I can't see what he says unless someone quotes him.
    Thanks

    I always try to find a link to stuff I get in email . . . but that's just me ;)
