Little Boy’s Explanation of God — Fabulous!!

It was written by an 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista , CA . He wrote it for his third grade homework assignment, to ‘explain God.’ I wonder if any of us could have done as well?

EXPLANATION OF GOD:

‘One of God’s main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn’t make grownups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That way he doesn’t have to take up his valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.’

Why Women Cry

A little boy asked his mother, «Why are you crying?»

«Because I’m a woman,» she told him.

«I don’t understand,» he said.

His Mom just hugged him and said, «And you never will.»

Later the little boy asked his father, «Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?»

Angel in my dreams

A loving angel came to me in dreams,

And showed me life’s not always what it seems,

And brought me to a place where sweet dreams live,

The Saints and the Church speak out on abortion!

The following represents the teaching of the Church from the [early] second century through to the fifth century…. Note that penalties, when they are given, are neither civil nor criminal, but ecclesiastical and pastoral (excommunication for the purpose of inducing repentance). Also note that the these quotes deal with both surgical and chemically induced abortion, both pre- and post-quickening.

All quotes are from «The Church Fathers on Social Issues», Department of youth Ministry of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America.

From the Letter to Diognetus

(speaking of what distinguishes Christians from pagans):

«They marry, as do all others; they beget children but they do not destroy their offspring» (literally ‘cast away fetuses’). Διαβάστε τη συνέχεια του άρθρου »

Human Predators Stalk Haiti’s Vulnerable Kids

Mia Pean’s heart sank last week when she saw the Toyota pickup truck cruising the debris-cluttered streets of Leogagne, ground zero for the earthquake that has devastated Haiti. Each time the driver saw a child – especially a young teen – he would stick his head out of the window and shout, «Manje, manje,» Creole for «eat.» Pean says she watched the hungry kids, four or five at a time, hop into the back of the pickup, which then disappeared. «I saw the same man again a few days later in Carrefour,» a poor suburb of Port-au-Prince, says Pean. «I asked him, ‘What are you doing with all those children?’ He said, ‘Don’t worry, we’re going to put them in safe homes.’ Then he drove off.»

But Pean, a Haitian-American emergency consultant for the Andrew Young Foundation, doubts that altruism is the motive of the pickup driver, and others like him, who are now prowling Haiti’s streets. The quake that has killed 150,000 people has left thousands of children orphaned, and vulnerable to being preyed upon by child traffickers and Haiti’s shameful tradition of keeping child slaves known as restaveks. «I really fear,» says Pean, «that most of the kids you see being picked up on the streets in Haiti right now are going to become restaveks or victims of sexual trafficking.» Διαβάστε τη συνέχεια του άρθρου »
