Bagpipes vs Hate Preacher

Perfect:

A BAGPIPE playing student drowned out a homophobic bigot who compared being gay to bestiality in megaphone rant.

Brave Brice Ehmig confronted the preacher who was wearing a “Jesus saves from hell” T-shirt on the campus at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, USA, on Friday August 19.

Despite the preacher’s best efforts to have his voice heard, the fourth year student follows him around continuing to play the loud Scottish music.

Christian Book of the Day

I bet you really, really would like to see the inside of this book. Fear not. Hearts Content of a Mama has done it for you so you don’t need to bash your head against the wall repeatedly:

1. Do you try to make the home interesting, attractive, cheerful, a place of rest and relaxation—devoting as much thought and study to that as you would to a job?

2. Do you encourage your husband to go out frequently with his men friends, though it means leaving you home alone?

3. Do you serve meals that are enticing in variety and attractiveness?

4. Do you handle household finances in a businesslike way?

5. Do you keep yourself attractive (though not offensively so!) in appearance, in order that your husband may be proud to have everyone know you are his wife?

St. Louis Archbishop Says He Didn’t Know It Was Illegal For Priests To Have Sex With Kids

From Church and State:

An archbishop from St. Louis testified last month that he “wasn’t sure” if he knew it was illegal for priests to have sex with children.

Robert Carlson, now a 69-year-old archbishop in St. Louis but formerly an auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, gave a deposition last month for a lawsuit that claims the Minnesota Archdiocese and the Diocese of Winona caused a “public nuisance” by not disclosing information on abusive priests, the MPR news first reported.

Carlson additionally faces a clergy abuse lawsuit as part of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, where more than 100 priests and church employees have been accused of sexual abuse, the St. Louis Dispatch reports. Carlson has served as archbishop there since 2009.

Man Steals £1000 From Tattoo Shop, Gets Jesus Tattoo There, Skips Out Without Paying

From Luton Today:

A tattooist at RedINC Luton was stunned when the ‘customer’ claimed he had already paid another member of staff for the work and then used the confusion to skip out on a £250 bill.

CCTV footage seems to show that an hour before that the man took advantage of the tattooist locking up a back door to steal £1,000 from the front counter– which he stuffed into his jeans before sitting down to get his artwork finished. Remarkably the man already had a tattoo of praying hands on his other arm, which was inscribed with ‘Only God can judge me’.
