I was watching "Contact" the other night and came to the conclusion most politicians are like James Wood's character in this movie (There are very few Margaret Thatchers). No wonder Edward's dropped out of the presidential race. What a disappointment he ran on all this family stuff and apparently it was just a big lie.

Police Save Doll Locked In Car
Police in Australia frantically break a car window to save a lifeless baby, it turns out to be a doll(The same thing has happened in the United States with the same doll.).
The Black Widow Granny
A grandson was alarmed when his grandmother wanted to take out a $100,000 life insurance policy on his life. This is because five of his grandmother’s husbands and her son had been killed and/or died of suspicious deaths. The grandmother was also involved in various other money scams.

These people call themselves “Sign Followers” and they don’t just hanlde snakes but take Mark 16:17-18 literally and practice handling fire, healing the sick, drinking strychnine, and casting out demons. And appearenlty this is done not to prove anything, but conform to the Word of God. The churches are independent and are connected to three American movements in Protestantism: Holiness, Pentecostalism, and Fundamentalism. These people generally consider themselves as Holiness, and like fundamentalist believe in the literal interpretation of scriputure.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. - Mark 16:17-18
There actually has been a book written about the Coots family (the pastor who was arrested was actually interviewed for the book). The book is The Serpent Handlers: Three Families and Their Faith written by Fred Brown.
The whole thing sounds to me like Luke 4:12 where testing God is not trusting God.

That is where I went...this was fun and I always have been interested in Dante's Inferno although theological he and I are different. Some of the questions I didn't like, because the questions took on certain assumptions (Like what conduct is sin). Below is my score in more detail click the link below my scores and take the test yourself:

Previously I would have thought this was some type of publicity stunt or just Amy trying to mess with everyone's heads. But, now I just think she is just really messed up (Don't be a Janis Joplin, Amy!!!). And on a side note what about Madonna faking a story about divorcing Guy Ritchie for a publicity stunt? Crazy Madonna, but she knows how to make money.

I really don't think he understands what she is so upset about (He probably has gotten by with everything is entire life until now). Okay I love celebrity gossip. Gossip isn't good and I totally understand that and it is very undgodly. But, it is a good escape from other things unless you are the person being gossiped about (And I didn't buy a gossip magazine for five years after the Diana tragedy.). And Christie wanted this entire thing open so who am I to argue with her. On the other hand he did tell her he was sorry.
