I see
where this man who was on a tv show has died from a snake bite. I know
he believed in what he was doing and the reasons he felt that it was
required of him. I may not practice it myself, but I have great
confidence in it. I believe in that same God that he does. But let me
tell you what I don't believe in. Bashing him (or that religious
practice), making light of the situation, ridiculing him,
or other wise negative energy wasted in reference to his death. This
was a human being with a family who has feelings. I am sure they are in
grieving already, just as any other family would be. It is not OUR place
to judge him. I may not be living right at the moment but I tell you
one thing. God knows everything we do. He knows whether you are doing
things for the right reason or the wrong reason. And I know He will let
us understand it all after while.

Oh, please do. You could have an article in "Weird" just about you!

And yes, it's perfectly okay to make fun of irrationality. Our talibangelical fundie nutcases mock and disparage islam and mormonism and judaism.

So tough for the fundies.

Sure.
What do you do for a living, Ghost? I mean, besides harassing the Coots family.

No, no you do not.
I am your GOD.

That other guy believed in God Jenkins, he lives in the next made up world down the street from me.
