Godless is the book that I read for this report. It is about some weird kids who decide to be water tower worshippers, so they start a religion called Chutengodianism. The book was written by Pete Hautman, who writes a lot of books and once ate 22 hot dogs in 15 minutes.

- Godless Constitution
Drafted in1787 and ratified in1788 the U.S. Constitution is a godless document. Its utter neglect of religion was no oversight; it was apparent to all at the time.

This campaign to discredit the Constitution as irreligious, which for many of its opponents was its principal flaw, is seldom mentioned today, because too many people today would like to ignore the fact that it is a godless document.

CHRISTOPHER WREN AND BLETCHINGDON
A young clergyman named William Holder had become rector of Bletchingdon in 1642. In 1643 Rector Dr Holder married Christopher Wren’s eldest sister, Susan, who was then only 16, five years older than Christopher.

Odabrala sam mesto Palmanova, 12 kilometara udaljeno od prestonice, odmah pored Magalufa gde sam letovala pre devet godina. Međutim, ovo letovalište je neuporedivo lepše od prethodnog, prvo zato što je mirnije a potom i zbog lepšeg rasporeda ulic...
