Take this last comment from the Elwood Library Nativity dust up (in which some folks are really p.o.'d that they were asked to remove a nativity from the public library):
let me tell you what happened to my husband, he said so what's the big deal its just a bunch of plastic , let them take it down..then we fought, he couldnt get much sleep that night, he lost to credit cards the next day and some more things started to happen to ruin his day till he told God he was sorry for what he said ..then things began to look up..the clouds parted in other words..so maybe you better think before you act...lolThat "lol" quenches all the fire and brimstone talk, doesn't it? So, let's take the first few lines from the Book of Genesis and see how we might bring it up to speed:
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. :P
Now that's illuminating. :)
