Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Would You Let Michael Jackson Sleep With YOUR Child?

I do not normally post this sort of drivel. But the naivete of certain people who are unwilling to actually think through the issues forces me sometimes to take up trivial matters which ought to be self-evident. Most people assume that grown men are not allowed to sleep with little children. Any man practicing that is automatically suspected of being a child molester and for good reason: most men who do such things ARE pedophiles! I guess Michael Jackson was a special case. He wasn't really a pedophile, was he? Naw.....

Suddenly, after Jackson has died, the media is now exonerating him of any suspicion that he did anything wrong. You might want to reconsider: Reality Check

Someone in a position of power like Jackson gets off and even has a media blitz excusing his extremely questionable behavior. Any normal man knows that the thing to do is to avoid even the appearance of evil. Not Jackson--he gets a free pass to molest children and have an untarnished reputation post mortem.
