Hindu God's Can't Trade
I couldn't help but laugh when I read this article today that describes a recent Indian Court ruling. The ruling declares that Hindu God's including Ganesha are unable to trade in shares because according to Judges P.B. Majumdar and Rajendra Sawant "Trading in shares on the stock market requires certain skills and expertise and to expect this from deities would not be proper."
Duh, of course they can't trade. They're just statues and pictures... Good luck talking much less trading the stockmarket. Anyway the Judges go on to say, "Gods and goddesses are meant to be worshipped in temples, not dragged into commercial activities like share trading." Sound's like they're pretty impotent 'gods' really.
I'm glad that the Bible teaches us, "The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man..." Thank goodness for that :)
