Religious groups by their nature are exclusive.
This whole concept of "inclusivity" and "everyone is equal" is ridiculous, stupid, and demonstrably false.
The U.S. Constitution guarantees equality of the laws, not equality of everything.
True, I was being a bit bombastic, but religious groups accept people all the time that do not follow all the doctrines of their bible. Even the manager at Red Lobster gets in, even with that shellfish sin.

The name "Frank Stanton" was a cute inside joke which I find very funny.

Since that idiot from Omaha assumed it, I decided to use my real name.

(And a short funny story regarding that, I once had a guy I chatted with online show up unexpectedly pounding on my front door.)

No doubt that was a 16 year old looking for Daniel.

That does NOT sound like a funny story, it sounds like a serial killer stalking you. Now you know why I would not meet on line strangers!

They're 2 separate stories.

The "Frank Stanton story" is as follows:

I was doing a job over at the West Side Yards in Manhattan. I had to meet a Local 3 guy (electrician) to check out a job. He introduced himself and his name was "Frank Stanton". The name meant nothing to me at the time. He was a nice guy, and everything went well with us on the job.

Later that night, after returning home, I was watching tv late at nite and there was an old cowboy movie on from the 1930's. I came in in the middle of it. The sheriff rode into a small town, got off his horse, and walked into the saloon. He put his money down on the bar and said to the bartender, "Whisky !" The bartender poured him a whisky and asked what he was doing in town. The sheriff said, "I'm looking for an outlaw !" The bartender said, "Well, what's hs name ?" and the sheriff said....... "Frank Stanton !" ROFL !(TRUE STORY !)

So the next few days I worked with the Local 3 guy, I called him "The Outlaw" !

:)

LOL

Oh, lordy..that was a REALLY long journey for the, uh, the "punchline". I would hardly call it an "ROFL" moment. More like a STAHFE...."smile tiredly and hope for escape", not a general known one, I just made it up. OK, so now we know. And let's not ever speak of it again.
