Subject: RE: Religious (or otherwise) Doorknockers. (BS)
I am not going to got too deeply into my beliefs, but I was raised in the Catholic Church. While questioning a lot of the bible as a teen, I was told by a priest "The Bible is a book written by the people of that time for the people of that time" he went on to say that it was message of God's love that we should be paying attention rather than taking it absolutely literally. I believe in God, I believe that if you live your life trying to do well and good, you will be rewarded. There are those who believe that Mother Teresa isn't in heaven as she was not a member of the "right" church. Sorry, I don't buy it.

Being in the computer business, many telemarketers expect me and my co-horts to be wealthy and we are beseiged with calls from people selling things like time shares, mutual funds etc. One of the fellows in my office came up with one that not only stops them cold but takes his name right off their prospect list. His little white lie is "Gee, I'd love to help you, but I've just declared personal bankruptcy" he never hears back.
