Why Do Witches Burn?

Tonight we attended a Bible study at our church, during which time my 11 year old sister hung out with her friends and played a game.On the way home in the car, we asked what game they had played."You'll never believe it," Jaley said, exasperated. "It was the most boring game EVER: court.""Court?" My husband and I were both confused."Yeah. There was someone who was accused and someone was the judge and it was really boring. They accused one girl of being a witch."My husband laughed."Did they weigh her against a duck?"Jaley gave my husband an odd look before replying: "Yes. They did. pause How did you know? One kid had to be the duck and make quacking noises. It was really weird."I guess she'd never seen Monty Python before.

HA! Sounds like sister J is having fun in the tropics. I envy her! wonder if she's old enough to enjoy Monty Python? Be careful though. There really are people who believe that Christian churches are teaching their children all about how to hunt witches. So please tell me/us that the game the children were playing weren't lessons being taught by some church leader!

Hey, don't you feel lucky?"We are addressing the real pain felt by Mr. and Mrs. Jones on Main Street," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said. "They are why we must pass this legislation today."

Boy, those church leaders are something else, teaching Monty Python. I didn't know you were Muslim.<|:-0..

I just read the other comments and realized it maybe wasn't the church leaders who organized the game. Or, I hope it wasn't. Yikes.

Penny enjoys Monty Python, I would think Jaley's more than old enough.

No, it was just some children who happened to be at the church ;-)

No, they were specifically acting out the scene from the movie.

And here I thought that the church leaders were all cool, organising a game like that to show how stupid witch-hunting was . . .

See? This is what happens to pot bellied white white men who were raised Catholic when they try to be accepting and diverse. I lift the veil of victimhood and shrug it off.I'll have you know that, since I am homeschooling my churn on god stuff, I have rented The Holy Grail for bible study this week in Jaley's honor.And it was foolaide...
