It was only a few years ago that they were burning copies of HP in front of the downtown library here in JAX.

Let's play casting agents for Harry Potter.

Which of the trolls should we cast as Lucius Malfoy?

I vote for Thing Again.

Which of the trolls should be cast as Draco Malfoy?

I vote for Wot aka Dear Sweet Alfred.

Which of the trolls should we cast as Tom Marvolo Riddle aka Lord Voldemort?

I vote for Joe a true son of the Church of Rome!

I don't think we could cast you as the Maggie Smith charater because you only rhyme with "witch".

How Christian, can't you just feel the love of Jesus coming from this little man.

No wonder he is clueless about Jesus, even with reading about him.

Get to know Him before it's too late......

No worse than McCabe calling us "followers of the anti christ." But I guess you ignore that because she is in TEC and agrees with you.

Hypocrite!

sorry if pointing out MW's hypocrisy offends you. We can discuss things as adults as soon as your colleagues grow up.

After 18 THOUSAND posts...nothing offends me. Is is possible to go into 2011 with some real dialogue instead of the constant bickering?

I am seriously working on learning about the Church, the Bible and how to transfer it into my everyday life.

I am up for it. I think it would be a better way forward for all involved.

I can take it, believe me I have seen and taken far worse. I just wanted to point out your blatant hypocrisy.

You comment that Joe is not showing Christian values in the comment above yet you say nothing to those with whom you agree.

It is obvious that you will never look at yourself or your friends in a realistic manner.

There can be no doubt in our minds that you are a member of the Body of the Anti-Christ. None at all. Your 'fruit' is evil and based on the false worship of an object.

You have placed a created object before the Creator Himself.

You totally reject the commandment to love and serve others given by Christ Jesus Himself.

You totally reject the Holy Spirit and His ongoing revelation of Christ Jesus' unfolding truth to the world.

You are a member of the Body of the Anti-Christ by your own free will.

This is the most un-Christian board that I have ever seen. The end.

Mmmm, seriously? So does the bible teach you to smuggle illegal items through customs? Does the bible teach you to bring contraband items illegally into the country? Does the bible teach you to post things just to pull somebody's chain? Does the bible teach the breaking to the laws of the country you claim nationality in? Just wondering.
