Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I'm no great fan of Islam, but I'm not sure I find the idea of kicking people at prayer in the backside funny.  We do similar metanias in the Orthodox Church.

I'm guessing these are the "Big 15" carnivores, since much larger herbivores have existed on the earth.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Oops! When I take things from facebook and there is a description in the post rather than the actual pic, I sometimes forget to add a caption when I post it here. I guess I'm just used to the text being part of the pic, so all you have to do is copy the link. Anyway, the description of it was: "The fifteen largest known active predators, extinct or alive."

I put this:

width=100

...inside the first [img] tag. You can also resize by height. I usually just do by width, and it keeps the proportions of the pic the same automatically.

Ha ha. No that's the neighbor kid. I pay him in cheese to put together Lego models for me, which I then usually take pictures of (with me behind them) and post them online. I mean, I love Lego, but my online Lego persona is crazy, especially in Europe, and I just can't keep up with it doing all the builds by myself. Anyway, so I told him if he built the big millennium falcon model for me that instead of cheese I'd pay him in online publicity this time. He jumped at the chance. His name is Rusty.
