Sin in Walton-on-the-Wolds

The author at Burton school

God got a lot more touchy-feelie since I was five – not in the Vatican sense, if you get my drift. A lot less fire and brimstone, and a bit more fluffy-bunny and sticking-plaster. Much more Newty than OT. Good to see someone reformed.

At Burton-on-the-Wolds Infants’ School in the 1950’s we were apprised of his less appealing, more vengeful, side. Back in his bad old days, God seemed to think nothing of hurling down plagues of all sorts of horrid things on ancient Egyptians at the drop of a hat. He also had a tendency to lob stuff like thundering great fireballs about willy-nilly. And there was the time he flooded the entire planet because of wickedness. I mean, what’s more wicked? Resolving problems quietly over a cup of tea didn’t enter his agenda. Good, old-fashioned table manners were not quite his thing.

Don't bottle it up, let everybody know your opinion. And please feel free to leave a link to any of your recent posts

Rules on comments

As the comments sections are not intended to be general forums, comments are expected to bear some relevance to the subject of the post. Nevertheless, I do allow some generous leeway in this, particularly if I judge the comment to be of special interest.

Although I'm only too happy to link to your posts, those posts should be your own work, and not the work of others, due to copyright issues.
