Significant dates

Unless you live in the USA with their weird backwards way of writing dates, today is a special date: 11/12/13.

This is the last time you will see a sequential date until January 1st 2103. You won’t get to enjoy that one though, because by then you, your parents, your friends, your pets if you have them, and everyone you have ever known or loved will be dead. Don’t be too depressed though, because there is a silver lining: at least that annoying National Tiles guy will be dead too.

I got a little distracted there, but back to the special date. But wait a minute…the date isn’t really 11/12/13. Jesus isn’t breaking out in the Holy Acne of Antioch or being embarrassed by sudden bulges that his mother can’t explain. The year is 2013. 11/12/2013 doesn’t look nearly so nice, does it? We humans seem to have a knack for conveniently ignoring facts or information that get in the way of what we want to believe. And this, dear readers, is pretty much the basis of the entire Biblical justification for opposing homosexuality.

What goes around comes around

I am a firm believer that what goes around comes around*.
