On the Carpet:

Inspirations: Big Red Links #38


Why is Sunday the Christian sabbath, instead of Saturday like the Jewish sabbath?  Jewish people, after all, founded Christianity, including Jesus and his disciples. Roman Emperor Constantine, previously pagan, decided to make Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire, but he was a politician, so he hedged his bets and honored the sun as well, moving the sabbath to the “SUNday.” You can read about it here: How The Sabbath Was Changed | Sabbath Truth.

Like Constantine, I’m putting Sunday to my own uses. I grew up on (force-fed) Protestantism, but I don’t intend to dabble any further with religion than I already have in this post. I merely wish to offer some hopefully inspirational links:

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!
