In all likelihood, we'd be praying four times a day and advocating women keep themselves clothed in such a way that our adolescent urges wouldn't be aroused.

The whole not eating pork thing would suck the worst....no ribs, no Boston butt, no bacon....mmph. Now I'm hungry.

If there was a loving God then there should be no religion that claims superiority over another. Does this register or am I committing blasphemy again?
what was the other camp to the indians with the feather?

Actually, it's "Jesus is immortal", not "a mortal"...

Wake up, that's praying 5 times a day unless you started a new religion and the liberal Muslims like myself eat pork and have not been struck down by a lightening bolt yet.
