Peaceful Solutions

Religion has been at the core of a few differences of opinion in my greater family.

For example: my wife's family is Catholic and they wanted us to be married in the Church by a Priest. I, being opposed to the entire concept of organized religion, argued in favor for a civil ceremony.

Ultimately we found middle ground that satisfied everyone's criteria.

We were married by a Justice of the Peace, but one who had been convicted of molesting young boys.

Moral: If you look hard enough there are always ways to reach peaceful solutions to religious conflicts.

Oh! And yes, I am going to go to Hell.

I followed your coffepot over here from someone's blog and when I read this, decided to stay.

It really is all about compromise, isn't? :)

Hello Coffeypot,

My Mother always told me that I was going to "Hell" if I didn't change my ways but she never told me what needed to be changed.
I still scratch my head when I think of those words.

See you in the "Hot Land".
