A rather noncommittal answer... wouldn't you say?

I'm glad you're doing ok. I was actually a little worried about you.

I've been thinking about you off and on for about a month now. Are you ok?

My marriage is stronger than ever, I just got a new used car, I have published a poem, and I may be a bit closer to an idea regarding a TOE.

Yes, doing fine. My wife and I finally got ourselves a house after years of squaring away finances and saving. We are having fun improving it and making it our perfect home.

Fantastic! Susie? Really? I think that is just great!!!!! I'm very happy for you. And the poem, it's about time you got published. You've got serious talent! What is TOE?

At first glance, I am siding with the Supreme Court on this one if the "protesters" have to be at least 1,000 feet away. I also don't think the father deserved $11 million or $5 million for the defamation of his son's character.

On the other hand, if I were the father, I would certainly have to use every trick in the book to not march over there and beat their freaken asses for disrespecting my son.

I try to think about the victims of what this is directed to. I wonder how I would react at a time of grief that is beyond anyones comprehension to have this at his funeral. Who is their right minds would do a thing like this, and even think they are close to God in doing it? Its insane for the lack of any better term.

We have one universal standard that seems to be honored in everysingle religion from Judism to Islam, Christian to Buddist of Hindu. That is the respect for the dead. All religions in some way decicate the dead to eternity, and have a standard of not disturbing the dead after interment. It seems to be the only universal standard to all religions, some after life rituals, standard of care, and respect for the physical remains of the dead. This act of disturbing that funeral goes against every religion since the dawn of man, it surpasses all boundries of deciency whatsoever. It is not an act from God, nor guided by any standard of religion anyplace on earth. It is an act done by those of total ignorance, yet the parodox is the act was condoned and ruled acceptable by a group of Judges thought to be of the most intellegent and educated in our society. Quite a contrast if you ask me. I wonder what God must be thinking?

It amazes me how any "Christian" can pick one sin, call it bad and ignore their own sins. None of them have the right to stand "representing God" and do what they are doing.

They may have the constitutional right to speech, but simple decency in such a time of loss should prevail. To me, the biggest sin is for anyone to stand at a funeral, during their brother's/sister's most devastatingly painful time in their lives, grieving the loss of one they loved, and heckle them into even more misery.

I cannot ever picture Christ standing at someone's funeral and causing the family more pain and misery. If we were meant to judge, then there'd be no reason for God to. imo.

I can see it now..

...the protesters stand before God reviewing this moment and say.. "no worries God, we judged this one. You should have seen us, we made his whole family cry in despair." God replies, "you created so much hate and anger, you made the devil proud."

Dawkins thinks belief in God is an excuse to evade thinking in the scientific world. Sadly, he is ignorant to the list of christian scientists who have contributed & founded many of the sciences he himself believes in. How ironic.

Worst part about it was if they were judging the dead person, he wasn;t even a gay man, all we did was die in war for his country, he had nothing to do with the issue the Westborrow church was protesting. Secondly, if anyone was about to be saved and turn to Christ, and saw them, it probably made those people run for the hills. Their actions do more to stop people from finding the Lord than helping anyone find the Lord IMHO.
