ricochet

Watch out where you aim your spiritual weapons: you just might end up in the line of fire.
In an e-mail to supervisors, the male co-worker said he was invited to witness the praying and cleansing but became uncomfortable when Shatkin began to chant loudly and rub perfumed oil on the absent co-worker's cubicle wall.

The man quoted Shatkin as praying, "You vicious evil dogs. Get the hell out of here in the name of Jesus. ... I command you to leave."
The only ones leaving: Shatkin and her female co-prayer-warrior. Both were fired for creating a "hostile work environment" and appropriating university property. They're now suing, claiming religious discrimination because no one warned them they could be axed if they were loony.

I bought some holy anointing oil at the base of Masada near the dead sea a couple of weeks ago. I was going to use it to rub on my coworkers cubicle desks, but then I needed something to go with my pita, so I ran out. Does imbibing holy oil make me holy, or simply blasphemous?
