George W. Bush Loves him Some Chase Utley

And who can blame him?

Q: Mr. President, I know you’re going to hate this, but I’m hoping that we may twist your arm and talk about baseball for just a moment. (Laughter.) Mr. President, you’re a Major League Baseball team owner again. Everyone is a free agent. You have a Yankees-like wallet. Who is your first position player? Who’s your pitcher?

THE PRESIDENT: That’s a great question. I like Ottley [sic] from the Philadelphia Phillies. He’s a middle infielder, which is always — you know, they say you have strength up the middle — there’s nothing better than having a good person up the middle that can hit. And Roy Halladay from the Toronto Blue Jays is a great pitcher. He’s a steady guy, he burns up innings.

Why is Deuteronomy 25: 11-12 in the Bible?

Deuteronomy 25: 11-12 – Catholic Answers Forums

If you’re like me and have the reference is to, here’s the relevant verses:

When two men are fighting and the wife of one intervenes to save her husband from the blows of his opponent, if she stretches out her hand and seizes the latter by his private parts,

you shall chop off her hand without pity.

My hunch: it’s God’s saying “Hands off the nards” is always a good policy.

More likely: just another emphasis on the need for women to refrain from getting to close to a man other than her husband.

In response to the direct question of the poster, it’s most likely a law specifically for the Jews that is not binding on Christians today. But “hands off the nards” probably is.
