My kids and I often play a game called “Dictionary”. In the game, I randomly open a dictionary; pick a word; tell the children the first letter of the word; tell the part of speech; then read the definition slowly. The first child to guess the word wins.
One of today’s words went like this:
The word begins with an “S”. [noun], “giving something to a god as an offering.”
Both children yelled out their answers simultaneously:
“Sacrifice!” said my son.
“Stupidity!” said my daughter.
They were both right!
Note: This should not be offensive to Christians since they no longer believe that Yahweh likes the smell of burned animal flesh — Jesus’ sacrificed flesh ended that. Jews also don’t sacrifice any more because their Temple is gone, though Orthodox Jews and others long for sacrifices to return (see here). Muslims, on the other hand, fill their streets with goat blood on the several holidays (see this Eid). But to their credit, they eat the sacrificed goat (and often give to the poor). They don’t waste it in fumes wafting up to please the nostrils of Allāh.
