Randall, thank you so much for reminding me that you steered me to the "amputee" site. I am sorry I forgot my source.
I am so with you on the prayer thing and I had the same thought about the prayers for the girl who died. People, get up off your knees, unfold your hands, and start working toward sensible gun laws and the social institutions that fail to detect insanity that brings about such tragedy.
You are right about not being too bold about non-belief in a crowd of Hell's Angels who are christian, or whatever. Judicious boldness seems to be right.
I got really far behind reading my mail while at my daughter's home and with my five great-grandchildren. Thanks for being patient.
I guess what gets my goat are the prayers (in church. What an exercise in futility! It's so inane, let alone ridiculous. When that poor Colo. high school student (Clare?) died last week, I couldn't help but wonder what all those people who prayed for her recovery thought. I wonder if anyone decided to reject god?
I don't think being surrounded by a bunch of Hell's Angels is a good time to say " You're a bunch of ugly misfits!". There was one person that asked me what church I went to. I admitted I didn't go to any because I am not a Christian. "What are you?", she asked. I totally shocked her with the truth!

Loren, thanks for the great video! It sends a message all USA citizens need to see. Even though the evidence has been here for many years, many do not realize the condition our nation ... and the world ... is in and we need to make basic changed in our thinking and actions.
I'm not sure what your last question refers to. If it was my last sentence in my previous comment, I should have said, "If ONE wants to be of help, ....". I certainly didn't mean you personally. Are we on th same page? Glad you like the amputee website.
I'm wondering if (and will check on) the website "doesgodhateamputees.com" is still active(?). And all those prayers on healing, saving, protecting, preventing, etc., --wasted efforts. You're right. If you want to be of help, do something constructive.
