Silence is Golden !!!


one man-woman377676_380461248692648_566911204_nOne might think that after my tirade of the several church denominations mentioned in yesterdays blog I would have received at least one angry response? But no, not a peep which indicates these people who shout so loudly when among their like minded friends are mute when confronted by other Christians who do not believe as they do. When I feel justified that I’m right about something I’m prepared to shout it from the roof tops. Pity our anti gay friends are not courageous enough to do the same. Instead they condemn and judge from the safety of their church pews and pulpits. Anyway enough on this subject (at least for the moment) its time for a wee bit of humour.

A former submariner took a new job as a high school teacher in a rough suburb of London. Just before the school year started he injured his back and was required to wear a thin plaster cast around his upper body. Fortunately the cast fitted under his shirt and wasn’t noticeable. On the first day of class he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the toughest school in London. The smart-aleck punks heard the new teacher was a former submariner, and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk, when a strong breeze made his tie flap. He picked up a stapler and stapled his tie to his chest.   Dead silence!!!! the rest of the year went very smoothly

We submariners are a tough bunch eh????

God Bless and keep reading
