Common-place Book: n. a book in which common-places, or notable or striking passages are noted; a book in which things especially to be remembered or referred to are recorded.
One could make a case that this is funny because it is more true than satirical. I love it.
Thanks for the reminder of the need to life a balanced Christian life, and to avoid fanaticism and extremism. I was taken to task on my blog for suggesting that giving money to beggars was an act of "Christian" charity. Fancy that!
s-p, your observation that this is more true than satirical rings true. I forwarded this to a co-worker who, unbelievably, took it as straight-up serious. I then had to explain the concepts of satire, parody and irony. It's worse than we thought!
sigh... a bad Christian AND illiterate too... not a good combo for defending the faith. :)
Ah, The Onion. :-)Mary
