I am a Christian.

My definition of the word "Christian" is "I believe that Jesus Christ was and is the Son of God, that He was and is incapable of sin, and that He willingly died out of love for me, that I might know the same love God has for Him". This is my personal belief, and I understand and respect that there are many that do not share this opinion. That is, of course, entirely up to them and I'm not out to ram my beliefs down anyone's throat.

I supported and respected the US media's decision to not re-print the cartoons depicting Muhammad, as it was done out respect. I support and respect our President (I am neither Republican or Democrat). I support equal rights for people, regardless of their sexual orientation. I support our troops. I will gladly pay higher taxes if it means that others do not have to make the choice between eating or paying for medicine.

I think we should all be able to believe what we want as long as we can respect each other.

In the name of that respect, I ask that you please stop all the "Jesus Zombie" jokes. It is actually very hurtful to me.

Thank you.

Very sincery yours,
Meri

Would I be a loser poser if I bought a purple North Face fleece jacket? I can't decide.

Just attended my first Ballet class in over 6 years. Sure my pirouettes, promonades and grand jet├ęs sti suck, but really no worse than before.

And this time, I won't stay away for so long.

(Miss R: great choice on the shoes! I picked up a pair and really like them. )

You really should check this out:

While it is sadly lacking in sexy Scottish men reading poetry, it makes up for it (almost) with the smoldering awesomeness that is Dan Stevens.

Though I'm still not talking to him after he went off and got married.

Enjoy!

(And Happy New Year!)
