Students at St. Peter Interparish School in Washington D.C., have taken it upon themselves to adapt the magical sport invented by author J.K. Rowling for the "muggle" people.
Quiddithch was played by the students as part of a celebration for completing the school's summer reading program yesterday. Of course this muggle version did not entirely resemble what Harry Potter would play at Hogwarts with his classmates.
There were no flying brooms to be seen, and the non-magical muggles simply used one blue basketball for play. This form of Quidditch could be described as 'hockey on grass with broom sticks'. However, the muggle students did adapt the rules of the now Famous Rowling's game to bring in some more authenticity.
Dressed as wizards, the students ran up and down the field whacking the ball with broom sticks. I guess you could say, that this hardly qualifies as news at all.
"The Founders wanted to construct a "God Fearing" country for very practical reasons"
"The code (for the Traditional Warrior) as far as religion is concerned, is secular"
"The Law of God cannot be observed ahead of the Law of the United States"
Thus speaks THE ALMIGHTY BILL from both Culture Warrior and the O'Reilly Factor, and these quotes give you an insight to the following 10 Commandments laid out in Culture Warrior. It may be worth saying that in themselves these commandments are fairly innocuous, but I kid you not, that his total destruction of the Catholic Church and every other moral authority in his book led up to this, and indeed he refers to them as the 10 Commandments:
1) Keep your promises. (Like if your Catholic don't cause scandal to the Church)
2) Focus on other people, not yourself. (For instance give credit where it is due, for good ideas you write about)
3) See the world the way it is, not the way you want it to be. (Again, acknowledge the accomplishments of others, even those of your own religion...also don't lie about these accomplishments)
4) Understand and respect Judeo-Christian philosophy. (No comment needed)
5) Respect the nobility of America. (nothing wrong with that)
6) Allow yourself to make fact-based judgments. (ok, so culture warrior does lack here)
7) Respect and defend private property. (for instance, when someone writes a book and owns copyright over that, its good to credit them for the words and ideas they helped bring together)
8) Develop mental toughness. (I honestly have no idea what this one actually means if someone can help me out with that I would be most grateful.)
9) Defend the weak and vulnerable. (or exploit them, whatever sells books)
10) Engage the secular-progressive opposition in a straight-forward and honest manner. (straight forward...honest....huh?)
