Leaving Summer

It always seems as summer ends and the beaches grow cold and barren, my mind settles into a mode of reflection and contemplation. Some memories frolicking in the ocean waves roar with laughter and passion! And others bring monotonous waves of pain....

Gentle clouds in the distance .   No footsteps in the sand.   Misted path obscures what lies ahead....

"The List"

... Ah, yes..."THE LIST". It's for anal retentive people who like to have a feigned sense of accomplishment, when what we actually should be doin' is CHILLIN' on our days off! Stoopid me, though...always had a list. When I was younger , things were on the list like ..."tie shoes",..."find girlfriend", ..."buy more list paper" .... Yes...."make new list"...was on the list too! Have you ever seen that old SNL skit.."Cooking with the Anal Retentive Chef?"

Jiffy Foot

Back in the 1960' s and 1970's...there was a widespread outbreak of  "jiffy foot"   here in the Southen U.S.   It was a condition that slowly spread and blemished  children's bare feet.  The pads of their feet became calloused and irreversibly blackened and remained that way into young adulthood.  The cure?   Shoes!   ( and health board policies of  "No shirt, No shoes, No service!"  )

"Jiffy Foot" is used to describe what bare feet look like after they have shuffled around on a dusty Jiffy Food Store floor....

Is Pope Francis Gay?

Is Pope Francis Gay?

"It has been estimated that at least 33 percent of all priests in the RC Church in the United States are homosexual."[12]

Blasphemy! Hellbound on a Sunday morning!..... To dare ask such a question about the world's most pious man! But there is at least a 33% chance...that he is actually gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I have often said that is time for another Ten Commandments. Obviously confused about the word and will of God...Moses ascended Mount Sinai to receive the first ten, and descended to deliver these laws to his decadent and confused Israelite followers.

    The air of confusion, chaos and perceived decadence on the issues of abortion, homosexuality, women's rights, and pedophilia abuses by Church leadership, certainly exists today..and seemingly warrants clarification. The Church will call it "Renewal"...asserting that what was written is sufficient..and we just aren't listening! There is very little.. "wiggle room".. , when it comes to interpreting Biblical verse:

" But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

"And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”

"Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."

"Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body."

"For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God;"

"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.”

"Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous."

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

We are all sinners. Pope too!   Maybe he is gay....not that there's anything wrong with that!
