Mama's little devil

winged space creature

The boy child of an atheist father ... cared for weekdays by a good, Evangelical Christian woman ... says his very first sentence one morning at breakfast as he's dribbling milk and cereal Os from his spoon onto the table:

"Oh God!"

He spends the next few days repeating the sentence after every minor mishap while both father and caretaker cringe ... one in disbelief, the other in fervent belief.

His lapsed Catholic, agnostic mother just laughs and laughs and laughs.

Just goes to show ya how impressionable the little ones are and how their belief system can be pointed in any one direction, influencing their decisions as an adult. This is why Cults, Religions, Political affiliations, civilizations…ect, prefer to raise the little ones with their beliefs entrenched as opposed to cultivating new assimilations…The assimilated followers are more likely to question this belief and revolt.

I would have thought the Champ’s first sentence to include “Picture” or “Blog” in it somewhere!
