I have had used books that I sold for more than the entire Newsweek operation. I believe it sold for $1US. Some rich guy must have wanted his own magazine and looked for the cheapest one he could acquire.

That is beside the point, what do you think about the ark?

Religion, when it is done correctly, is beautful That is the case more often than not but this story is a wonderful example of forgiveness.


Fort Smith Mosque Forgives Its Vandal, Paying His Debts

Quote:
In October of 2016, the Masjid Al Salam in Fort Smith was vandalized. But over one year later, the man behind the act, Abraham Davis, receives his ticket to freedom from the people he hurt the most.

"It shouldn't be hanging over him for the rest of his life," President of Al Salam Louay Nassri said.

October of 2016 Swastika's etched in spray paint and the words "go home" covered the front of the Masjid Al Salam.

The mosque security cameras caught the man behind the act.

"We knew this person did a bad thing and there has to be consequences for their actions," Nassri said. "But we didn't have any ill feelings towards anybody."

Abraham Davis' felony charge consisted of community service and a hefty fine.

A task Davis might not have been able to complete on his own.

"We heard that he was having financial problems," Nassri said. "Now if you don't pay your fine, that's an automatic six years in jail. Well, we didn't want him to go to jail for six years."

A good story.

But also - he cant pay his fine if he is in jail. Lets face it, very little reform happens in a jail cell. (education is the key here)
