Kuru...sounds familiar...I remember watching a program (probably on NatGeo) about a tribe and I believe kuru was mentioned. Awful way to die.

Or how 'bout I just post a picture of Helen Thomas? That should be punishment enough.

I grope my wife in public pretty frequently. Granted, "public" in this case indicates an adult party or event. I wouldn't be grabbing her butt at Disney World but if we're out dancing in Atlantic City, heck yeah. Of course, you and I might run with different style crowds but in my case, it's pretty much acceptable behavior. I don't find it to be disrespectful to my wife at all. It's the opposite. It's one of my ways of showing affection to her and she likes it.

I believe in Motor Cars...which is why I take care crossing the road. Rabbits do not believe in motor cars...they blindly stumble across the road.

The motor cars exist even though I believe in them, and the Rabbits do not. Difference is...Rabbits are likely to get smushed...I am not.

Thatís very thoughtful, I think that gets to the heart of the issue. Secular government was originally a Christian idea (render unto Cesar what is Cesarís) to allow people to find the right path on their own. It was never intended to encourage complete abandonment of all standards of decency and moral health.

How do you know rabbits don't believe in motor cars? Have you ever had a discussion about this with a rabbit?
