Have you ever passed by a church that says "honk for Jesus" on their bill board? If one is a hardcore believer in Jesus he might get tempted to honk his horn, but at the same time he probably refrains from it because he notices that the sign belongs to a competing church and that is not really his Jesus. He would save his honk for his own Jesus when he attends his church. I have good friends who are strong believers in Jesus and some of them are casting their vote for Romney because they mistakenly believe that Romney will at least implement their anti abortion, anti gay and other so called socially conservative agendas. Implementation of those conservative social agendas is pretty hard and gets harder by every new generation. It is very hard to turn back the clock of history.

My son, Bahman, on his FaceBook has an entry that says, "'gossip is just jostling for social position' – my dad. put that on a magnet". His quote was a phrase I had used to comfort a close friend about some gossip she had heard a couple of weeks earlier. I told her that gossip is part of our social DNA and we cannot do away with it. That is what people do when they meet each other. A lot of the conversation is gossip, talking about other people who are not present and I summed it up with the quoted phrase.
