I would suspect that most of you don’t know that I won the Florida lottery. Last year in fact. Before I get to that, and how I won, let me remind you that we’ve covered a few dicey issues on this blog.
We covered The Swearing/Cussing Christian in two posts. People were divided on this one. Really divided.
We covered the controversy over pornography – there were no dissenters among those who commented.
I suppose today’s post deals with the morality of gambling.
So let me get back to the Florida lotto.
Last year, I bought a lotto ticket for kicks. It cost me $1.00. My conscience didn’t bother me in doing so (should it have?)
I checked the numbers and low and behold, I won. Yep, for realz. I truly did. I’m being cereal.
My ticket had 4 numbers out of 7. For a grand total of $83 and change.
[Cough] . . . I never said I won the jackpot!!
So how did I win?
I bought a ticket.
Now for today’s question . . . the lottery has been described by many as a “tax on the poor.”
Do you agree or disagree? And is buying a lotto ticket gambling? Is gambling always wrong?
