    Beginning in 1906 at Tuskegee, Carver led a Bible class on Sundays for several students at their request.

    Carver viewed faith in Jesus Christ as a means of destroying both barriers of racial disharmony and social stratification. He was as concerned with his students' character development as he was with their intellectual development. He compiled a list of eight cardinal virtues for his students to strive toward:


    •Be clean both inside and out.
    •Neither look up to the rich nor down on the poor.
    •Lose, if need be, without squealing.
    •Win without bragging.
    •Always be considerate of women, children, and older people.
    •Be too brave to lie.
    •Be too generous to cheat.
    •Take your share of the world and let others take theirs. Beginning in 1906 at Tuskegee, Carver led a Bible class on Sundays for several students at their request.

    No doubt a man of considerable wisdom and virtue. Something the world is in short supply of.

    I particularly like the "be to brave to lie" and "be to generous to cheat".

    Notice that all of those sayings are hard sayings, especially since the truth inevitably gives us all a swift kick in the arse.

    ..: and be sure your sin will find you out.

    Narrow is the truth and few there be that find it, but broad is the lie and many there be that believe it.

    Well since we all sin we all should have our hands slapped.

    It's never fun, but necessary.

    As the Bible says, a fool despises correction.

    Of a truth. Instead "they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."

    I know the Pope seems more concerned about giving sermons on global warming and the virtue of government redistribution and condemning people building walls while ignoring 50 million plus abortions which the Catholic church recognizes as a genocide.

    But then, they did nothing about the Holocaust either, so..........more of the same I reckon.

    The Catholic church acknowledged evolution over 50 years ago.
    Aren't most Christian sects just breakaways from the Catholic church ?

    "The Catholic church acknowledged evolution over 50 years ago."

    We were talking about the pope.

    "Aren't most Christian sects just breakaways from the Catholic church ?"

    No.

    "It is unwise to speak badly of ones' mother."

    What if one's mother is a whore?
