    I don't blame the book....I blame the human race.

    Yup, would be hard pressed to find any philosophy that hasn't been manipulated by man for nefarious ends at some point in time.

    I can think of but one whose aim has remained pure, used only for the well-being of all humanity. After all, he WOULD make a plan and he'd follow through, that's what he'd do:

    I don't care at all about being open-minded. Most opened minded people I know have no thoughts of their own. If nothing else I appreciate conviction. Nothing more ridiculous than some loosie goosie "yeah he's my Lord and savior but I could be wrong" kind of open-minded amirite?

    For hardcore Christians who believe you've found eternal salvation you guys sure are sensitive. Lutheran is the most honest of the bunch.

    I can't remember how many infractions I've had since three different mods have handed down three different demerits since I've been so bold as to point out how ludicrous all of this is, and much like religion, the rules here are shamelessly made up as we go along, here but by the grace of God go I:

    You're really really really not good at this. The Internet is not for you. You should just quit.

    By the way I shot 78 on Friday for those of you scoring at home. Honestly I'd renounce my agnosticism, cash in my tithe and slit a goat's throat at the altar tomorrow morning at the early mass if I could pick up a few strokes. ************** driver.

    Pray that this happens kthanxbai.

    I think I can take your posts from this thread alone and assemble DSM-5.

    Most bizarre postings in a long long time.

    Yeah but in a political bi-polar swap sort of way...

    You seem to be all over the board here. You shouldn't be lecturing anybody else about their internet posting abilities.

    Either way, the only honest response is "I don't know."

    I really don't think God cares that much about your golf game. From your comment it seems you have a very small view of what a higher power might really be about...sadly God doesn't fit in the little box you are trying to cram Him in which is probably part of why you seem so angry about the subject.
    I am Fred Lawrence Anderson and I approve this post.
