We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

A Shining Gem
And the other gem of Minnesota sports is the Lynx, who last evening won their second WNBA championship in three years. After their third outstanding season in succession, the Lynx won seven straight games in the postseason without a loss, itself a notable achievement in professional sports of all kinds, to nail down their second WNBA title. Until three years ago, the Lynx had been a piece with the rest of the Minnesota sports scene, but no more. The word dynasty is being bandied about more and more, and that is possible. Their five starters and top reserve are all excellent players, and there is no reason for 2014 to be any different from 2013—except, well, we better take this one season at a time because, after all, it is Minnesota sports. In the meantime, it is fun to win big for a change. Thank you, Lynx!
