Just Missed It!

A tour bus load full of noisy 
UNC students arrives at 
Runnymede, England.

They gather around the 
guide who says, "This is 
the spot where the barons 
forced King John to sign 
the Magna Carta."

One Sophomore pushing 
his way to the front of the 
crowd asks, "When did that 

"1215," answers the guide.

The student looks at his watch 
and says, "Shoot! Just missed 
it by a half hour!"

Thought For The OPEN Mind - Humor From American Culture


If you stop believing what your professor told you had to be true
and if you start thinking for yourself you may come to some
conclusions you hadn't expected. You may find the Bible makes
more sense than you thought or were told to think. Allow yourself
to be ruined, ruined with regard to what you always thought could
be true. Can you believe what you don't understand? You and I
believe everyday what we don't understand unless it comes to
the issue of salvation. - - - Dr. Woodrow Kroll


There is simply no historic foundation for the position that the
Framers intended to build the 'wall of separation' that was
constitutionalized in Everson. The 'wall of separation be-
tween church and state' is a metaphor based on bad history,
a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging.
It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned.
- - - Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, William Rehnquist


In 1796 the US Supreme Court issued this ruling, "By our form
of government, the Christian religion is the established religion,
and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed on
equal footing." Some 57 years later, after Congress was
petitioned to separate Christian principles from government,
in 1853 the House Judiciary Committee issued their formal
report, including these words: "In this age there is no substitute
for Christianity. This was the religion of the founders of the republic,
and they expected it to be the religion of their dependents. The
great vital, conservative elements in our system is the belief of
our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the gospel
of Jesus Christ." - - - Dr. Gerald Beavan

Classified Ad from local newspaper:

06' Suzuki GSXR 1000, $9,000

This bike is perfect! It has only 1,000 miles and has had
its 500 mile dealer service.

It's been adult ridden, all wheels have always been on the
ground. I use it as a cruiser/commuter. I'm selling it
because it was purchased without proper consent of a loving
wife. Apparently "Do whatever you want." doesn't mean what
I thought. Call Steve. 555-1212.
