Im sure some people are going to find what I say offensive. I hope youll hear me out and really consider my thoughts before coming to rash conclusions.
Discrimination is loosely defined as unfair treatment of a person or group based on prejudice. This I most definitely do not think of myself as doing and if any of you detect me doing such a thing, please bring it to my attention.

I’d say because we secretly know deep down inside that this is all just what we want to believe as opposed to what we know to be true. But I disagree. Churches seem to be filling up just as much as in the past. It’s the culture of churches that’s changing.

THEN today my tivo downloaded all these new features that not only make it even easier to find programs i wanna record, they also have this new tivocast feature, where you tell it what product reviews and movie trailers and cooking tips and so on you want to download from the internet, and boom, right there in your playing list. THEN I look in my tivo suggestions box and my tivo decided to record “Clerks” for me without me even telling it to! I can really tell from the tivo suggestions it’s been recording lately that it’s starting to learn my… Read More
