Last Wednesday Joe Biden, vice president of the U.S., was at a press conference. The commentators had a short conversation about what was on his forehead. At one point they mused that it was possibly a bruise from skiing.
It was Ash Wednesday.
They were ashes.
Ok a few ground rules here people.
-You don’t make fun of a mark on a Catholics head on Ash Wednesday.
-You don’t offer a hamburger to a Hindu.
– You don’t rip a head scarf of Muslim.
-You don’t serve pork chops and asparagus wrapped in bacon to a Jew (I’m looking at you McPherson College).
I’m not asking for a 3o page paper on all of the world’s religions, I’m just asking for some basic knowledge.
Bonus rule for religious literacy– If you’re going to introduce legislation making it mandatory to have the 10 Commandments in public buildings, and someone asks you to name them the 10 Commandments……YOU BETTER KNOW MORE THAT 3 OF THEM!
