    re: America's greatest sin [W:264]

    It's easy to be a man of your convictions on the internet, doing it in the real world is a whole 'nother cookie. If I was a gambling man, given to loose ways concerning chance I'd wager a shiny nickle most of the takes a strong position in the face of great unpopularity are not at all like that in real life. Coming to websites to carry on like the lone pillar against the rising tide of debauchery, moral turpitude, corruption.... you know the song.

    They revel in being the 'last man/American/Patriot who still stands true and say it quite often'. Pure fantasy, thats why second life websites are so popular. Why never beens flock to COD war games. The chance to be what they can't be in real life.

    Anyway 'vetting' is just an excuse to never meet, I make no pretensions on being that last brave soul, but have met guys I disagree with many times to joke and smoke, for me it is very telling the few who hide in real life after being so bold and strong on the interwebz.

    Vetting??? what is Goshin running for public office? going to manage the vast Tigger Estate once he finally finds that perfect hidey hole outside the USofA?

    Something along the line of National Survival is a negligee we have the Devil put on so we will lie down with him...

    Work on it some, my depth is rather shallow in all this philosophy stuff.

    I'm more of a hell you say kinda guy.

    If your soldiers are in a place needing rescue, and the only way to get there is to plow through a legion of civilians, then you do so.

    And which all of you know is never going to change. Which is why I often wonder why many of you even bother to engage in conversation with me most of the time.
    Why do you even post here?

    Enemies, no; but we will never be allies either. That places you in a very unpleasant grey area; mostly due to your status as a Moderator. If it weren't for that you'd have been on the Ignore List a long time ago.

    Do you consider yourself a Christian? (I say consider, because if you do, you are WAYYY off the mark).

    Nope. I wasted a whole bunch of years with that garbage before seeing the light on Wednesday, August 22, 2001 at about 12:55pm. Now I do not consider myself a member of ANY organized religious group and in fact find organized religion to be a complete and utter waste.

    I didn't say I don't believe in a Higher Power/Diety. I just don't believe in organized religion. In fact, I see all religion as being different ways of viewing the same Diety; similar to looking at a very bright light through different facets of a crystal. Each facet distorts the light in a slightly different way, but it always distorts it. It is my belief that the "Light" in the analogy is who judges us at the end of our lives.
