This is just what the title says, "Sharing E-mails". I get quite a few e-mails that are really good, heart-felt, touching and/or informative. So, I thought this would be a great place to share them. I'd like anyone and everyone else to post theirs, too. I just don't want any that relate to pornography, violence or any other distasteful content. I've started out with the original page and now I'm adding on as needed. Please post your username with the e-mail you submit.

Dear Concerned Student:
I am not allowed in schools.
How did this get started?...
I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare complained she didn't want any prayer in our schools.
And we said, OK...
Someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible that says:
"Thou shalt not kill,
Thou shalt not steal,
And love your neighbors as yourself."
And we said, OK...
Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehaved, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem.
And we said...
An expert should know what he's talking about, so we won't spank them anymore.
Then someone said...
Teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave.
And the school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave, because we don't want any bad publicity and we surely don't want to be sued.
And we accepted their reasoning...
The entertainment industry said to make TV shows and movies that promote profanity, violence and illicit sex... and let's record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes...
And we said....
"It's just entertainment and it has no adverse effect and nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead.
Now we're asking ourselves:
"Why do our children have no conscience?
Why don't they know right from wrong?
Why does it not bother them to kill strangers, classmates or even themselves?"
Undoubtedly, if we thought about it long and hard enough, we could figure it out.
I'm sure it has a great deal to do with...
"WE REAP WHAT WE SOW,"
At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end!

At which he's fed.

Tries to think.
Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries, then
Tax his tears.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his a$$.
Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done,
Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.
Put these words upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom..."
When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What the heck happened? Can you spell "politicians!"?
... And I still have to "press 1" ...
... for English.
A few years after I was born, my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small town. From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family. The stranger was quickly accepted and was around from then on.
As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family. In my young mind, he had a special niche. My parents were complementary instructors: Mom taught me good from evil, and Dad taught me to obey. But the stranger...he was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies.
If I wanted to know anything about politics, history or science, he always knew the answers about the past, understood the present and even seemed able to predict the future! He took my family to the first major league ball game. He made me laugh, and he made me cry. The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad didn't seem to mind.
Sometimes, Mom would get up quietly while the rest of us were shushing each other to listen to what he had to say, and she would go to the kitchen for peace and quiet. (I wonder now if she ever prayed for the stranger to leave.)
Dad ruled our household with certain moral convictions, but the stranger never felt obligated to honor them. Profanity, for example, was not allowed in our home... Not from us, our friends or any visitors. Our longtime visitor, however, got away with four-letter words that burned my ears and made my dad squirm and my mother blush.
My Dad didn't permit the liberal use of alcohol, but the stranger encouraged us to try it on a regular basis. He made cigarettes look cool, cigars manly and pipes distinguished. He talked freely (much too freely!) about sex. His comments were sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and generally embarrassing.
I now know that my early concepts about relationships were influenced strongly by the stranger. Time after time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet he was seldom rebuked... And NEVER asked to leave.
More than fifty years have passed since the stranger moved in with our family. He has blended right in and is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first. Still, if you could walk into my parents' den today, you would still find him sitting over in his corner, waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures. His name?....
We just call him, "TV."
**Note: This should be required reading for every household !**
...And he has a younger sister now. We call her "Computer."
"Atheist Sues For Holiday"
In Florida an atheist became incensed over the preparation of Easter and Passover holidays. He decided to contact his lawyer about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidays while atheists had no holiday to celebrate. The case was brought before a wise judge. After listening to the long passionate presentation by the lawyer, the Judge banged his gavel and declared "Case Dismissed."
The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, "Your Honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? Christians have Christmas, Easter and many other observances. Jews have Passover, Yom Kppur and Hanukkah......yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."
The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said, "Obviously your client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate, his own atheists' holiday!"
The lawyer pompously said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any such holiday for atheists. Just when might that holiday be, your Honor?"
The judge said, "Well, it comes every year on exactly the same date.....April 1st! Since our calendar sets April 1st as April Fools Day, consider that Psalm 14:1, Psalm 53 states, The fool says in his heart, there is no God. Thus, in my opinion, if your client says there is no God, then by scripture he is a fool, thus April 1st is his holiday!"
Pray that some day our courts will be full of these kinds of judges.....maybe then, we can put God back where He belongs.........in everything we do....
Way to go, Judge!
