Setting: Grade 11 Religion Class
Section Abrahamic Religions
It's Friday(NB: On Fridays Mr. E would leave the class open for questions to clear up anything that might have been misunderstood during the week. The Q& A was then followed by debates. It was quite common for girls who had no questions to tune out of the Q & A and whisper amongst themselves.)
Mr. E: Anyone need something cleared up.
Girl 1: Raising her hand: Ah, sir, could you explain "circumcision" again.
Mr. E: It's a ceremony performed on Jewish boys........Mr. E was going to continue, but he was curtly cut - off by the
Girl from the back of the class who had been engaged in a private conversation: Figures they'd ONLY do it for boys!
Mr E: turns around and bangs his head on the blackboard.
Scripture to keep in mind
Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth:  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.  My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
