A Shot of my High School Religion Class

Setting: Grade 11 Religion Class
Section Abrahamic Religions
Subsection: Judaism

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.

Very funny! Was she blonde? (Oops! Sorry about that!)
Puff, you don't have the +1 gadget over here...and you were going to be my "test market". Thanks for the info though! I figured you'd know about it. Your blog is aptly named.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
