sir bust, good advice. point taken. thebigpayback - very true. "To ask is a temporary shame, not to ask a life-long shame." or, I'm paraphrasing this one.. 'To ask when one knows is politeness, to ask when one does not know is the rule.' Here's one: why are people so concerned about another persons concept of God? Do religions say to worry about it? To be truly abhorred they do not believe in the same book teaching a divine way of living.. that's confusing to me. Different religions are suited to the way the people needed to live at that time for there to be peace. a guidebook to lead a life not tormented by evil must be suited to the person reading the book... I just hope I don't choose the wrong one and wind up in a fiery dungeon full of sadomasochists.
