Once More Into the Breach

Finding Nonsense and Beating it Sensible

I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

No Arms, No Problem

While the Church of England and its' counterpart in the US, the Episcopal Church give cover to those who think handicapped babies should not live, people such as George Dennehy demonstrate how short sighted they are.

George Dennehy has many reasons to be thankful. He has a loving family, a strong faith in God and an ability to play beautiful music with his toes. George Dennehy sits first chair in the cello section of the string orchestra at Oak Knoll Middle School in Hanover County.

Born without arms George has learned to use his feet to do most tasks. This is not unusual. People adapt to their circumstances all the time. What George has that the Church of England does not is faith that God has a purpose for him.

Hebrews 11:6 is his favorite Bible verse, and he easily recites it from memory: "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."..

...He's curious about where he will go in life. When he was younger, he said he used to wonder why God chose him to go through life without arms.

But he doesn't think like that much anymore.

"There's some plan for me that God has, so I just . . . accept it and then work with it."

Bishop Butler are you listening?
