    Religious music is beautiful because it speaks of an all encompassing love, solace, and forgiveness from a power so much more potent than the powers of man that it has to leave one grasping to touch it's hem.

A gorgeous sentence.

I'm looking at the radio-station-locator page that I printed up for radio stations in south Florida. I can only pick up a handful clearly on this crappy little anthill-blaster that I have here. Two are "religious" and two are "Christian contemporary." They have the strongest signals because: Christian. Sometimes I don't know that I'm listening to religious hip-hop, until the sermon ever 20 minutes.

    I don't have a single shred of faith but would that I did. What comfort it would be to have a vessel to put all my shame, fear and doubt into. I'm jealous of those who have found such solace.

And here I thought he was a deity himself.

I would agree, were it not for the apostrophe-abuse in the penultimate word :-)

Yeah - I'm glad you were the killjoy and not me. It's nasty work, but someone's got to do it.
