I know you are all anxiously awaiting my review of the Quiverfull book, but I decided to review my new bread machine first (a decidedly more pleasant topic). Check it out.
And while I’m here, I wanted to defend what’s left of the English language. These remarks are aimed at those who blog and comment about religious issues.
Your religion does NOT have “tenants.” A tenant is a person who lives on your property and pays you rent.
|1.||a person or group that rents and occupies land, a house, an office, or the like, from another for a period of time; lessee.|
|2.||Law. a person who holds or possesses for a time lands, tenements, or personalty of another, usually for rent.|
|3.||an occupant or inhabitant of any place.|
I repeat, your religion does not have tenants, except perhaps for the church mice.
Your religion DOES have “tenets.” Tenets are the things your religion teaches you to believe.
any opinion, principle, doctrine, dogma, etc., esp. one held as true by members of a profession, group, or movement.
See the difference? For the love of Mike (who is Mike, anyway?), please apply these words correctly next time. Thank you.
