Finger of Scorn

Disclaimer: Mormon oriented post.

A few years ago, my brother was reading the scriptures with his family. They were in the chapter about Lehi's dream of the Tree of Life in the Book of Mormon.

His oldest son (who was around 6 years old at the time) read the following verse:

1 Nephi 8:33
And great was the multitude that did enter into that strange building. And after they did enter into that building they did point the finger of scorn at me and those that were partaking of the fruit also; but we heeded them not.

When he finished, he turned to his dad and, while holding up his middle finger, asked, "Hey Dad, is this the finger of scorn?"

I love little children for that very reason.
