Psalm 107, v23-30

By lex, on May 15th, 2008

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
these see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.

For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind,
which lifteth up the waves thereof.
They mount up to the heaven,
they go down again to the depths:

their soul is melted because of trouble.
They reel to and fro,
and stagger like a drunken man,
and are at their wit’s end.

Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble,
and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.

Then are they glad because they be quiet;
so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Troubled

By lex, on October 21st, 2007

Forewarned is forearmed – a long, rambling post follows dealing with the Christian faith, the Episcopal Church of the USA and national politics. Most people who are not bored to tears will probably be outraged. As much as anything, I’m writing this one to myself. You’re welcome to read it if you’d like, but I won’t ask you to.

Memorial Day

By Lex, on Mon – May 31, 2004

The text of my speech, for those who were curious. It will be given in church, so there are religious references – if such things offend you, I recommend you read elsewhere.

Wish me luck!

Understanding

Posted by lex, on February 13, 2009

 

Buffalo resident Muzzammil Hassan opened up a web portal in 2004 called “Bridges TV“. The outlet was designed to “help portray Muslims in a more positive light.”

From a cursory scan, the site – which “aims to foster a greater understanding among many cultures and diverse populations” – focuses a great deal of energy on such under- reported issues as the occupation of Gaza by the Evil Zionist Entity. In English!

Mr. Hassan’s wife had recently filed for divorce against the media magnate of cross-cultural understanding. So yesterday, Mr. Hassan appears to have decided that a way to foster greater understanding in the English-speaking world was to cut off her head:

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community — reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

He needn’t have bothered. We already understood perfectly.

Amature philosophical/religious musings after the jump, for those who care for that sort of thing.
