  •  If you live your life according to the (8+ / 0-)

    precepts that Jesus is said to have espoused, you will have earned my everlasting admiration. We may differ on some things, but this is not one of them.

      It isn't easy, and I fail often enough, but I keep trying because it is important to me to keep trying. More or less I try to live by the advice of St. Francis of Assisi, "Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words."
