He starts reading me something from his Christian magazine.
“Have you ever seen Charlton Heston playing Moses in the film of the same name?” He says. “He and his brother go to Pharaoh to show what God can do. It turns into a fierce power struggle. Aaron throws down his stick and it becomes a snake. The Egyptian magicians throw down their sticks and they become snakes too. However, Aaron’s snake swallows up all the other snakes! It’s the same thing today! Consulting mediums is forbidden and no-one has any ‘powers’. True help is from God and that includes the medical services.”
“I think you mean The Ten Commandments,” I say.
“The film isn’t called Moses,” I say. “It’s called The Ten Commandments.”
The Christian looks upset. I feel sorry for him as he’s probably said this to hundreds of people, and all his religious persuasion is lost because people can only think about him getting the name of the film wrong.
