When God told the Jews not to Worship the Golden Calf, this was why.

Well, I don't have a while lot of time tonight (gotta get enough sleep for my big talk tomorrow. Yay!), so I'll leave you with this news headline I came across (it was listed under "Alternative Medicine" in the health section):

Cow urine touted as cure-all in India

....Yeah, that about sums it up. Apparently it's pretty hot stuff. Shopkeepers having trouble keeping all their various ungulate excretion-based products in stock and all that. Wow....Now, while I can make allowances some of the products they have there, like the cow urine aftershave (hey, at least it's sterile right? And it's not as bad as bathing in horse urine like the mongols. Silly mongols), and although I may never personally try the constipation medicine, whatever floats your boat (or unstops your cork as the case may be) isn't that much of a problem with me. No, what really gets me though is none of those things, it's the cow dung toothpaste. Now you all realize that's just wrong, right? Heck, if you like brown teeth there are plenty of better ways to get it. Just because it has more stomachs than you doesn't make it any holier, nor does it mean that putting the product of all those stomachs on your teeth isn't just plain nasty. Oi. Let this be a lesson to you then: this is what can happen to you if you you worship cows.

By the way, if you want to read that article (it's short) or see a picture of the cow urine aftershave or you just think I'm either lying or need much more sleep, here's the link:

"hindu nationalist BJP" is there something you're not telling us Ben? is there a reason you wanted us to read the very sick article about ppl ingesting and brushing cow waste on their bodies? I actually read the very interesting article and was very pleased to note that there is a hindu nationalist with your initials. yup. anywho... and jo you spelled enjoy wrong.

Ah-hah! I *KNEW* there was a good reason why i don't worship cows! Shoot, that makes the whole Christianity thing look like a walk in the park (as opposed to a stroll along the cow path...?).

At least our gods dont get milked...or poop in our front lawn...

I'd say we're headed in the right direction. Thanks, Ben. Such encouragement in the faith. What's a brother for, eh? ;)
