beware

The very first thing I have to say is that if this doesn't offend someone, then it's because wiser heads clicked away. I won't be providing the link to this, so you'll have to take my word that this line does in fact exist somewhere. It's from a blog that I may have visited but would never read (beyond a little post fodder I swear) and won't likely visit ever again.

The blog writer is a christian as is evidenced by the mounds of crap tacked up to every visible inch of their page. It's a little unseemly and very much an unpleasant place for me. No it's not just because I'm an atheist, and no my eyes don't burn when I read Bible verses. It just seems a bit much, a bit of Jesus and capitalism that I don't really recall as being part of the Bible, at least not the one I read.

Now to the funny, the line that sort of leapt off the page as I was wondering how exactly this blog was beating another in a particular skewed voting thing I won't link to as well. I have a feeling I'm courting trouble here, and I kind of like it, but I don't want anyone sending me death threats either.

Anyway, the writer who wrote the lines that are the subject of all this was discussing their desires concerning their relationship with their god. They explained it as, "the desire to press in and know Him more deeply."

HaHa, they want to press in and know god more deeply.

And that, friends and neighbors, is why I won't win. So thanks, and ya'll come back now.

Uh, I saw lots of blogs like that, but one in particular was really creepy, stepford wife pic and all.. and included a donation button, payable via paypal, in case you felt the need to pay for all the great stuff you saw on the site. Yeah, right. Maybe I should add one of those, to pay for the file server where I store all the free downloads I provide... Jesus saves, but Doc invests.

Best Teen Blogger? If you Google the phrase it's result #1.

Thanks, Chris. I can't say that changes anything, though I didn't consider the ease with which this sort of thing is done.

Oh, I did google the phrase, and if you google the exact quote, the only two results are them and me. No gray area here folks.
