When I was in 4th grade my teacher read this famous children’s book to our class: The Witches By Roald Dahl.  The book is about a young boy who spends time with his grandmother and learned about real life witches from her.  He even learned how to spot a real witch through a collection of symptoms.

In this list of symptoms, there were a few physical characteristics that really stuck to the memory of my classmates and I.  Witches were bald, with large nostrils and hated children. Click for more!

While the criticism of praying for innocent victims is usually “it doesn’t do anything to help the problem” that is not what we’ll discuss here.  We are going to discuss the morality behind who it is people are praying to: God.

Predicting The Regressive Left’s Response to the OSU Attacks

Earlier today a young man named Abdul Razak Artan attacked civilians in the Ohio State University Campus.  He attacked and injured 9 people with a butcher knife before he was killed by the Police.  As of this moment, the authorities are still investigating whether it was an act of terrorism.

I came across this captioned photo of Abdul in social media.

This is inspired by a conversation with my cousin few years ago while we weren’t exactly sober.  I just remembered it recently and decided to share it with you all.

*Hits Blunt*

So in the beginning, there was just Allah/God.  God was really bored so he created the heavens, angels etc.  Then after much sampling of different trees/plants he created, he created a special tree: marijuana. Click for more!
