I got this from Sybil. I hope she doesn't mind if I stole this from her blog. The only two people I can think of to tag are:

Although I promised not to bother you again, I found myself back here to read more of your posts.

I guess I'm fascinated with you, or more to the point, your ideology.

I have always considered myself a student of religion - typically never one to judge (usually), but more to question.

Some of my most robust discussions (or more accurately, debates) have been with the Jehovah Witnesses who insist I'm worth saving, and refuse to stop knocking on my door.

Having said all that, I felt compelled to comment here once again to tell you that as a matter of fact, I do not hate you. I used the term "hateful" on my post, but I suppose more appropriate words would have been frustrated, angry, or incredulous.

As witnessed by my earlier apology to you for my harsh comment, I almost immediately regretted having done so. As I said, we are all entitled to our beliefs, and diametrically opposed views are what gave birth to our nation. Who am I to take offense at yours?

Anyway, for whatever it's worth, I do not hate you. In fact, I don't hate anyone. Hate is a very strong word, and an entirely unproductive emotion.

Let's just say, I disagree with your isms. That's all.

Thanks Sybil. I will change the wording of my post. I also apologize for lack of honesty in my blog - I said I get 7 or 8 hours of sleep per night, and actually, I have been having trouble sleeping, and have been taking medication, and then I get a lot of sleep when i do, but without it it would be zilch. If i don't take it when I'm doing OK, i can get 6 hours.

Like i said - you are welcome to comment. I need to be humbled by comments like yours.
