Has just sent me a handwritten letter inviting me to attend a course on Christianity, I thought that was nice of him to take the time. I probably would go along to it, but I don't think I can make it due to the day/time.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Does he know you? You live in the city, no?

He does know me yes, in a sense I have encouraged his attentions... erm spiritually that is. Imagine the perfectly stereotypical anglican priest... thats him. Well apart from having a wife anyway.

I just can't bring myself to find any real truth in any of it.

There was no real purpose to this thread, just though I'd mentioned it as it literally just came though the letterbox.

sometimes I'm polite to the jehovahs witnesses. I know they'll never convince me - I tell them they'll never convince me ... but they just keep on trying ....

good for the priest, that man had no idea what learning disablities he would be dealing with.

I didn't know that I had set off a chain of replies to Izbo10's moronic post about Cerebral's problems in learning...

I have to admit that was pretty cool!

I just realized, if the priest is dealing with someone with learning disabilities, then how could it be good for him?

More service? More devotion and exhibition of virtue? Or is it the typical Izbonic nonsense?

Don't worry Cerebral, you're over 14 so he won't do anything bad to you.

By the way he is Church of England not Roman Catholic, though he has broken with tradition in that he has a wife.
