Pardon whilst I take a curmudgeonly turn.

I HATE glurge.
This email is a perfect example:

This is a beautiful photo of a giant American flag in Arizona The photo is authentic, UN-Touched and was taken on regular Kodak 35mm film. The person who took the picture couldn't believe the image created by the suns rays.
Nice of them to share it with the world!
Read what is says under the picture...

Here is what it says:

For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us...go ahead and delete this.
For the rest of us...pass this on"

Once again, my faithfulness is determined by whether-or-not I pass along a photo, or meme, or chain letter. It is a weariness.

The cross image is in no way miraculous. The warp and woof of the fabric of the flag acts as a star filter, showing the sunlight in a cruciform image.

God does indeed watch over us, but this photo merely shows His dabbling in physics. and it certainly does not show His approval of our nation or our foreign policy.

I can't stand those things. I have friends that I've told time and again NOT to send them to me. They still do. Arrrggh! BTW, pass it on! LOL
