Pop-up from the Pulpit, Or , Osama bin Laid Written by Kate Kaye
Continued from page 1
and his flock seem to have gone a bit overboard with pop-up ad. But maybe, just maybe, they're on to something. Perhaps there is a direct correlation between evils of pornography and lascivious lifestyles that foster Taliban-sanctioned terrorism. Think about it: reporters say Osama and crew live in caves, but they're not caves. They're pleasure dens. When media claim that these al Qaeda training camps are teaching troops to fire "stinger missiles," don't be fooled. The term "stinger missile" is a euphemism for most potent, powerful weapon of all: love gun, people, penis! As for those Afghani women who shroud themselves from head-to-toe in burkas, do you know what they've got under all that concealing clothing? Nothing -- that's right! Those harlots are completely nude under there! And that supreme leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar: that tale about him losing an eye after being hit by Soviet shrapnel is a fallacy! We all know why he really went blind. You guessed it: too much masturbation!
So, maybe if U.S. Government funnels fewer funds into military operations and this so-called "homeland security" and more money into war against pornography, we can truly rid world of evil-doers. Of course, posting Ten Commandments in Supreme Court chambers wouldn't hurt either.

If Christmas is Rotten...Written by Ruth Marlene Friesen
Continued from page 1
We - you and I are those clay pots. The hard times we have been through have worn us down, and given us permanent scars.
How do I get that treasure, you may ask. What is it?
This treasure is Jesus Christ Himself. When we choose to believe that Jesus is Son of God, come to earth on that very first Christmas, He abides in us and will walk and talk with us, if we surrender our wills completely to Him. Devote yourself to Him 100% and be unashamed about letting Him shine through you. When hard things come upon you, defer to Christ's way of handling matter.
Like if, Christmas should be a rotten time for you this next week. Stop yourself short and consider what would be Jesus' totally opposite way of coping. Then do that!
People will notice, though they may not grasp what's going on. you probably won't either, until you've done it some time and then look back....
Why look at that! There's bright and lovely treasure showing through those cracks and flaws in you!
