~Paul Nygard

The sign said STOP.  I didn’t.  So I said to the judge…


1.    “I feel that everyone has the right to choose their own interpretation of this word.”

2.    “My father never stopped. If I stopped, I would be condemning him.”

3.    “My family has always refused to stop. If it was good enough for them, then it is good enough for me.”

4.    “I have gone so long without stopping. I just don’t think I can start now.”

5.    “My preacher says I don’t have to stop.”

6.    “What about those who have never seen a STOP sign?”

7.    “My parents made me stop when I was young, so I just don’t do it now.”

8.    “I believe that only going is important. Stopping is optional.”

9.    “How do you know that the word really means today what it meant when it was written?”

10. “I’ll stop when my spouse decides to stop. It will mean more if we do it together.”

11. “It’s not anybody’s business whether I stop or not.”

12. “I feel that as long as we are all sincere that you, the judge, will accept us no matter what we do.”

The scripture said… “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins;” (Acts 2.38)


I didn’t…so I said to THE JUDGE…
