Welcome, NYGayBear!

Howdy!

Thanks for checking out my page!  I have all kinds of ideas of wonderful things to share with you about who I am, what I like, what makes me angry, and why its hard for me to kill woodchucks even though they are destructive little bastards.  I love hearing about folks stories and what sorts of things make them tick so feel free to share.  So, rather than me list, or go on ad naseum about what/who I am......just drop me a line and ask a question or two.

"You mean early Church Father's deciding that in order to accomodate Gentiles they wouldn't make them follow full Mosaic Law? To bad Acts 15 doesn't exactly jive with what Jesus apparently said in the Gospels."

Yeah, I'm still trying to get it all figured out so I can make use of it all.  I love it so far.  Good to hear from you.  We just got hit by a "blizzard" the other day, and it stopped the world here.  Now we have a feeling what it's like to live up there.
