Just Don’t Mention the J-Word

Now if he had mentioned Mohammad:

A North Carolina pastor was relieved of his duties as an honorary chaplain of the state house of representatives after he closed a prayer by invoking the name of Jesus.

“I got fired,” said Ron Baity, pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem. He had been invited to lead prayer for an entire week but his tenure was cut short when he refused to remove the name Jesus from his invocation.

Baity’s troubles began during the week of May 31. He said a House clerk asked to see his prayer. The invocation including prayers for our military, state lawmakers and a petition to God asking him to bless North Carolina.”

“When I handed it to the lady, I watched her eyes and they immediately went right to the bottom of the page and the word Jesus,” he told FOX News Radio. “She said ‘We would prefer that you not use the name Jesus. We have some people here that can be offended.’”

When Baity protested, she brought the matter to the attention of House Speaker Joe Hackney – a Democrat.

A Soldier’s Prayer – Iraq 2008

From Lt. G at Kaboom:

Lord, give me the strength not to attack with a baseball bat every fool and every chickenhawk and every Apathy Kid and every soft elitist and every intellectual hack and every Jody and every yuppie and every thirty-something child still finding himself when I get home. It’s not worth my time. Do give me the strength to convince them to stop breeding and to kill themselves, in the name of bettering America. It’s the only chance we have.

Jody– The non-military guy who is back home with the military guy’s wife/girlfriend. Jody leads a simple, soft life, and vengeance upon him will be swift and merciless.

Muslim Men Emotionally Abused By Women’s Dress

So even with up to 4 wives, they are too distracted to pray?

clipped from www.foxnews.com
Malaysia’s Muslim men are suffering sleepless nights and cannot pray properly because their thoughts are distracted by a growing number of women who wear sexy clothes in public, a prominent cleric said.
“We always [hear about] the abuse of children and wives in households, which is easily perceived by the eye, but the emotional abuse of men cannot be seen,” Nik Abdul Aziz said. “Our prayers become unfocused and our sleep is often disturbed.”
His party’s Web site published an illustration Wednesday of how women should dress — in long, flowing headscarves covering their hair and chests and “baggy and loose” long-sleeved, floor-length dresses.
