What, you were writing about something most of us know all too much about. I followed along just fine.

Yeah, life's a little ironic like that. I myself have had to copy someone's work at least once.

Too many Christians think they are, and forget that there's only _one_ superbeing. But I would expect in such a large church group, like the one I belong to, you'd find at least _some_ variation amongst its members. Surely, there's at least one geek in the bunch. God loves geeks of all kinds. Being interested in worldly things is not sinful or evil, either. Even Christ had pillow-fights.

I think we all do unjust things, regardless of religion or lack thereof. Caring is difficult sometimes :(. ___________________________________________________________ Gesendet von Yahoo! Mail - Jetzt mit 250MB Speicher kostenlos - Hier anmelden:
