…and in other news

Sometimes I can’t resist. When I heard of the leading GOP candidate’s plan for blocking all Muslims from entering the US, it reminded me of three things.

First, following 9/11 there were a lot of questions about citizenship status on college applications. These conversations have later returned following the requests of the dreamers. It always came to down to what was asked…and what the options for response are.

Second, this:

Crucifixion Supervisor: Next! Crucifixion?
Prisoner I: Yes.
Crucifixion Supervisor: Good. Out of the door, line on the left, one cross each. Next! Crucifixion?
Prisoner II: Yes.
Crucifixion Supervisor: Good. Out of the door, line on the left, one cross each. Next! Crucifixion?
Wiseguy: Uh, no, freedom.
Jailor I: Uhm?
Crucifixion Supervisor: What?
Wiseguy: Uh, freedom for me. They said I hadn’t done anything. so I could go free and live on an island somewhere.
Crucifixion Supervisor: Oh, oh, that’s jolly good: Well, off you go, then.
Wiseguy: No, I’m only pulling your leg. It’s crucifixion really.
Crucifixion Supervisor: Oh, oh, I see, very good, very good.
Well, out of the door…
Wiseguy: Yeah, I know the way, out of the door, one cross each, line on the left.

Third:

The church I was raised in believes in full immersion baptism. After all,  if you hold someone’s head under water long enough, they will come up believing your way.

Be nice. It won't hurt either of us.
