I don’t regret being brought up in a Christian environment… however, because I was, I must admit that at times I get a feeling of superiority when I see how ridiculous are some of the practices of non-Christians.
Almost as soon as the news of the Coronavirus was made public, these stuffed dummies began appearing in front of the homes of our neighbors.
They are meant to scare away the evil virus and protect the home and family from being infected.
Not all are as creative as their neighbors… or perhaps just didn’t have the time or material to make a dummy and so an ugly picture was drawn to let the virus know that it is not welcomed at this home.
Hey, that one resembles me… so that is where my old jeans ended up. It is a bit scary… but how ridiculous to believe that it would have any effect on a virus.
Imagine putting your faith in a dummy and even acknowledging your ignorance by displaying it in your front yard. I asked someone why they believed in this practice and they told me that it was because most of the houses that have dummies in front of them, do not get the Coronavirus… but that is not always the case.
I guess in many ways it is similar to those who pray… you don’t always get what you ask for.
