the religious posts I've been seeing here. I was all set to give you an up vote. Then, I read the rest of your comment. Couldn't give you that bump but, neither will I give you a down vote. "Physician, heal thyself", comes to mind.
Kudos to SmudgePot for a refreshing religious post. He does practice what he preaches and for that I respect him.
Generally, my problem with many of the religious and semi-religious posts and comments here can be boiled down to this: Don't be pointing out the splinter in someone else's eye, when you have yet to acknowledge the supersized log in your own eye. The holier than thou attitude just doesn't come across well for most liberty minded people.
