Really useful aid

by Feòrag

United States: There might be no fresh water or sewerage in New Orleans, but refugees will have no shortage of bog roll thanks to a generous donation from the Gideons:

The Gideons International are sending 40,000 Personal Witnessing Testaments (New Testament, Psalms, Proverbs) to be distributed at the Astrodome and other relief centers in Houston...

...The scriptures are on a truck due to arrive Sunday by 10 a.m. and we are planning shifts to provide patoral care 24/7.

God is at work, and we are called by Him to Serve His Will. There was a purpose for Katrina, let us not fail to fulfill our duties.

Gideons sending 40,000 New Testaments to Astrodome - Free Republic, 2nd September 2005 (via Grim Meathook Deluge Bible Class, Courtesy Of Some Fucking Scum - Warren Ellis, 2nd September 2005).

Indeed, Jamal. By the way, you don't have to put the URL for your blog at the end of your comments because you put it in the box marked "Website: (optional)". Doing this means your name is automagically turned into a link to your site.

Well they could always use the bibles as kindling?

Wax lyrical

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

This is not a contacts site. If you are looking for help regarding a particular path, I suggest The Witches' Voice, which does operate a contacts service.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.

You must give one to comment, but it will not be displayed and we won't let the spammers have it. If it is obviously false, your comment will be deleted, except in extenuating circumstances.

You must preview your comment first. Blame the spammers.
