*grin*... Nice little update there, Brad. It's nice to hear that the Co$ mind-monkeys are on a nice, slow, slippery slope into the abyss. If they really *are* opening only "by appointment" then they must be in true dire straits, since they obviously aren't pulling in the bucks to have even one full time Staffer on lines.
I would have *loved* to be in the Theological Wrecking Crew with you lads... Along with the fundimental firepower at your disposal, add the cluster munition of the multi-god facets of Shinto to that, and you've really got a mindjob on the move! Seems from what I've read, Churchies have a hard enough time dealing with one deity in other belief systems, so imagine having to contend with the concept of 800,000 of them!
Maybe you guys should attend a picket one day with "Theological Wrecking Crew" on the front, and the various spiritual affiliation of each individual on the back!
At any rate, why am I saying it's nice to see the Co$ in a slow burn? Because when that happens the lesson sticks better, IMHO. The more it hurts, the longer it stings, the more the memory of the error lives on.
Looking forward to other updates, I am.
