“It’s about the whole idea of gratitude. It’s not a religious thing, it’s a spiritual thing.” — Mary Haglund, owner of Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem, N.C., on her restaurant’s 15 percent discount for “praying in public.” She was quoted by Fox News.

  • Not religious? Really, Mary.
    That’s another thing I can’t believe.


    Why did god need Jesus to bleed out of is body?
    Didn’t god know the blood in the vein was just as good as blood out of the vein?

    In fact, the blood in the vein is better blood because it stays red. The dried blood will turn brown rather quickly and melt into the dirt. AND if God can take the blood out of the dirt, why not just wait for Jesus to get old and die normally instead of making him suffer first?

    What did God want with the blood? Why did he insist that it come out of the body at all?

    Why did God need the blood of Jesus to spill onto the ground and not into a cup? Why did god want the blood wasted? What was god intending to do with the blood once it hit the ground?

    Why is it important for the blood of Jesus to be wasted like that?

    What made the blood of Jesus special since it had his human mother Mary’s DNA it had to be from the same sinful blood line as Adam’s – so that blood must have contained the DNA of original sin.

    If the blood of any sinner is okay for God, why go out of his way to get Jesus’ blood?

    So since Jesus’ blood wasn’t purely from God only…
    What sense does it make for Jesus to need to spill it?
