Americans can always build a nice concentration camp for you, your friends and the Westboro Baptist Church crowd.. I'm sure, once there, you'll soon find reasons to hate each other.. The little children won't miss you; they'll still have Halloween..

Obviously, almost every child in the U.S. is brainwashed into religious belief at a very young age. How else would one account for the irrational religious beliefs held by a large majority of the population? Try selling religion to someone who was not brainwashed once they are old enough to think for themselves - they won't buy it.

Can you even believe an evangelical would throw around the word brainwash? Is it even possible they don't see the irony in that? I try to be indifferent to these absurdities but WOW!

You come off as so incredibly damaged that it's no wonder the gay themselves believe someone like you is latent.

There's no way in hell you don't have severe issues: none.

None in the goddamn world.

You bleed fracture and neuroses and personal problems all over these boards, stewing in such a savagery and monstrosity of hatred that it's *practical* and *obvious* to conclude you have some issue connected with your own sexuality.

You come here of your own free will to attack *no one on god's green earth except for gays*, specifically and pointedly, on a daily basis. And you don't have issues on the order of a train wreck?

You *reek* of damage. You *hemorrhage* it.

Christ.

It makes a great pie. I have enjoyed them since I was a little shaver. Although, I have to say, I have met very few people that have either tasted a rhubarb pie, or like them. And mixing in strawberries makes it even tastier.

I think I have had it now that you mentioned the strawberries! I'll have to ask my mom, I think Gram used to make it. Thanks for the memories!

Well. That's one in KC, one in StL, and one in Hidden Location (NE Jade). No wonder Mrs. Smith doesn't offer them. We couldn't possibly afford to buy all they could produce. But then, I like my pies fresh out of the oven, not re-heated from the freezer.

By the way, my hubby doesn't like them either. I don't know why, but his mother used to make them for his dad, and later for me too.
