Photo of the Moment

Just had to go back to my roots.

Too long in the sun of St Augustine. What a chump. To Witt:

Augustine of Hippo (pronounced /screw you we're from Texas) (Latin: Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis; (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430), Bishop of Hippo Regius, also known as St. Augustine or St. Austin, was a philosopher and theologian.

Augustine, a Latin church father, is one of the most important figures in the development of Western Christianity. Augustine was heavily influenced by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus. He framed the concepts of original sin and just war. (2259 days since 'mission accomplished') When the Roman Empire in the West was starting to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Church as a spiritual City of God distinct from the material City of Man. His thought profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. Augustine's City of God was closely identified with the church, and was the community which worshipped God.
Augustine was born in the city of Thagaste, the present day Souk Ahras, Algeria, (say what?) to a Catholic mother named Monica. He was educated in North Africa (say what?) and resisted his mother's pleas to become Christian. Living as a pagan intellectual, he took a concubine (living in sin) and became a Manichean (WTF). Later he converted to the Catholic Church, became a bishop, and opposed heresies, such as the belief that people can have the ability to choose to be good to such a degree as to merit salvation without divine aid (Pelagianism).

The Republicans of America, got the part about a just War, well ok the war part. To bad he finally listened to his bitch of a mother. I mean if that lack luster baby mill had kept her mouth shut the world would be a very different place. Where the hell was his old man? out bangin' 'round?, While his ol' lady is setting the world up for Barbara's misbegotten one, 15 centuries later? Boys need Mother figures who don't want them to suck, and Father figures who don't want them to blow.

of course that's just my opinion, i could be wrong.

    Let's assume that you are not wrong.
