Grrrr….. Nuns, just because you don’t know *how* to use a semicolon, it doesn’t mean that a semicolon shouldn’t ever be used. I guess they can’t limit their misteachings to just religion; they also want to spread ignorant lies about grammar, too. That’s like me saying the double harmonic scale should never be used because I don’t know how to play a musical instrument.
* Sorry, I guess no one should use French words like “critiquing” because I am not fluent in French.

When my sister in law posts notes like this on Facebook, I feel that she grossly under appreciates the magnitude and intensity of suffering and what a psycho her god would be to willingly inflict such suffering as a “test”. Instead, I think she is referring more to the stress of planning a wedding (for example).
I guess God tests some people by making it hard to find a parking space or a wedding venue, and others he tests by giving them AIDS from birth and almost zero food to eat, and as a bonus round, they must fend off brutal marauders.
