: >> >> Ok, here's why I made the Bible reference: First, the book is as thick as your standard Gidgeon's bible (I said Gideons and not St. James because of the beatles... Rocky Racoon)... it's "gold colored" pages and that ribbon which tells you which page you are on... all reminded me of a bible... physically. Then, there's Gibran's writing. If he's not criticizing the church, or Christians, he is writing about the afterlife, or God, or ... something religious sounding... I just read a poem which seemed to contradict all others... it basically said that God was man made... just like Fred always says... it's like He (Khalil Gibran) understands Christianity better than any priest or Christian that I ever spoke to... on a much higher level than I can comprehend.
: So, sorry, but I had to mention it... again... too bad. Just don't hurt me for it, please.
i see why you did it, but it's not exactly a compliment when you say something looks like a Bible, either - makes me yawn & think of church... & Gibran's much more exciting to me than wooden pews & old ladies' socials...
oh, i won't hurt you for it, unless you want me to >;)
