West Texas Wisdom

Again, for various reasons I've been a bit lax in posting recently. I plan to post something more substantial tomorrow (bet you can't wait) but in the meantime, here's a little something that a friend and colleague sent me today. Given it is the week after Valentine's Day, when there has been much reflection on human and divine love, this statement by Butch Hancock, a a native of Lubbock in West Texas and a musician with a group called "The Flatlanders" is quite interesting:

"Life in Lubbock, Texas taught me two things: One is that God loves you and you're going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on earth and you should save it for someone you love."

In my experience, you don't have to travel as far as Texas to come across wisdom like that being expounded from pulpits...
