Bit of a smirk on his face. I'd be hard pressed to keep a straight face with that rig on my head. Gasp

Because they are assholes.

Yep... I've seen this letter omission on multiple posts on different forums, usually as "G_d". Why is it that some Christians are wary of even typing the name of their god? Are they—literally—fearful of "offending" it?

Instead, shouldn't they be loudly proclaiming its name everywhere, for all to see (and glorify)?

That's interesting. I've never known Christians to do that. I thought it was strictly a Jewish thing.

RE: The Big "G" is Dying?
I always thought it was because a reference to a specific god was a proper noun and, therefore, capitalized. When you speak of the Christian god, which is a specific character, it would be God, whereas if you were referring to any old generic god it would be small "g".

I just saw it as proper English.

RE: The Big "G" is Dying?
For me personally a capital g refers to what is readily perceivable to the believer, subsidiary in nature as it is of GOD. GOD is a reference to the singular creative force of which we cannot know but through the subsidiary creations of GOD.

The same would be for the word Lord, LORD, lord, in which the latter is of little significance and may not even reference creation of GOD, or rather, it could reference a thing adverse to GOD.

Ha - it's actually a very comfortable, velvet admiral's hat with an ostrich plume. I have to admit, that pictured plume is pretty fluffy - it looks like two plumes. Those hats have their own cases - they are custom made! The whole outfit comes with medals, rings, various pins and a very real sword. It's all custom bling.

My dad was a knight. When he died, I told my mom to give his hat and one of his swords to another knight but I have no idea if she did. I own his more ornate, older sword & a ring. It's all very elaborate and totally awesome shit. Shy

Unless you ask Cap. "There's only one God ma'am, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that."

Need to think of a witty signature.
