24 Tishri 5769: Talk Show Host Day


Worthy causes of the day: “Protect Your Right to Vote” and “Protect Otero Mesa's Wild Beauty, Wildlife”

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
  1. “Unholy row threatens Holy Sepulchre”: I seriously have to ask: what would Jesus think of all this bickering?
  2. “The Bible Reincarnated: Visually Arresting”: Interesting technique, but how good a job does it do of getting people to actually read the contents?
  3. “Mandaeans - a threatened religion”: Yet another group endangered by Muslims in Iraq. Please compare them with the Zoroastrians, followers of another ancient religion, also persecuted in their homeland (Iran), and also facing the threat of extinction.
  4. “Malaysians warned not to question Islam”: It is a pathetic ideology which justifies itself through threats. Other religions at least try to explain what is better about them.
Today’s news and commentary:As everyone here in the US knows, October 31 will be Halloween, a secularized pagan holiday which has degenerated into parties, wearing silly costumes, practical jokes, and children going from house to house demanding unhealthy snacks that rot teeth. I do not celebrate Halloween, but I find the antics of those who do rather amusing. In that spirit, today’s weird thing (submitted by Barry) is “The 10 Most Disappointing Treats for Trick-or-Treaters”. I would like to note one item was left out of this list which should be obvious, that Peanuts classic, rocks. WARNING: Those seeking to give out disappointing treats on Halloween, please do not give out rocks, as these may end up being thrown through your windows. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
