I got tired of my old one so I change to something simple. What does everyone think?

I don't like it. It just feels wrong for a person to call themselves 'holy'.

Oh wow... You're Jewish? My bad. ^-^; Sorry if I came across as rude. I've been on kind of a crusade on the forums lately, where I get quick to retaliate against any real or perceived attack against God.

No worries here though my upbring was a conflict between Catholicism and Judaism so rarely been to service. Just celebrated the major holidays of both religions.

That's why I stay out of the PPR forums. I could care less what anyone else believes, that's their business. But I hate when people say certain things.

By the way, Jerry, I'm part Jewish myself but raised as Christian. Just thought that would be interesting to know. :)

Hehe, I'm Catholic myself. I've been part of the church since I was 12. Personally I would have loved to have been born Jewish, though.

I never go near that forum, but sometimes people in other forums think they're being smart/funny by attacking God, and it makes me really angry. For the most part I try to tun a blind eye toward it, but some days I just can't stand it and I wind up snapping.

Been it a few and someone made stuff about Jewish People which is total offense to me and end up going to the holocaust and the belief of some members Israel has no right to exist. Glad that thread was taking care of when it became more heated.

Speaking of Israel, I have a cousin who lives and works in a monastery there. I'd love to go to Israel sometime in my life. I have a book on basic Hebrew language, and I'm going to try to learn it.

People shouldn't be allowed to have custom 'ranks'. The enticement of having them encourages people to post bullsh!t messages, in non-discussion threads which usurp the forums, burying legitimate discussion topics and making the forum useless.

That's a little harsh Flismflop. There's actually not that many boards asking help for custom ranks...there's much more newbie questions like What's your age and repeat boards like that.

Yeah. I hardly ever see any kind of spamish activity relating to the ranks, and I'm on here literally every day. The most repeated topic I see is "Do you think I have Aspergers?".

I agree with ebec11 and IdahoRose because many forum sites don't custom ranks to make. Also I think have AS thread are the most commonly repeat threads there is on this site.
