Wednesday Words

First, our Quote:

Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life: if it has been honest and dutiful to society the religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one.
— Thomas Jefferson

What concerns me is how much politics and politicians have started using religion as a crutch to motivate voters. Further concern is illicited by the publics gravitating to the politicians for spouting off of nothing more than idle words. I believe there was a parable in the Bible for this exact situation. It is about a man who prays always the loudest, and who always made sure everyone watched when he donated his money. I’m not too sure of the result, but I’m pretty sure it went in the favor of the humbler worshiper.

And now, the words of the day:

oneiric

umbrage

I just enjoy saying “umbrage” it almost sounds like what it means. Though I was clueless as to the meaning of oneiric.

Hope these bring some creativity to your day.

    I have a bad taste in my mouth everytime I think of politicians using religion and take umbrage to it, but I’m not going to talk about it. It depresses me.

    MM- Yes, I love the body condom…admin- But part of the problem is exactly that no one wants to talk about it. I’m not saying that a politician should or shouldn’t be religious. They just should not base a campaign/policy on it. Because not everyone holds their beliefs. If you want to get really nitty-gritty, I don’t think any two people in the country have the exact same beliefs. How can they? Everyone’s brain is wired differently.
