QUESTION OF THE WEEK 7-11-11
Are you superstitious?
(Are there differences between practices of superstition and religious practices?)
For instance did you know why: It's bad luck to walk under a ladder. This came from the early Christian belief that a leaning ladder formed a triangle with the wall and ground. You must never violate the Holy Trinity by walking through a triangle, lest you be considered in league with the devil. (And you all know what good Christians did to people they suspected of being in league with the devil.)
