Ho hum, Church Doctrine. Please, turn off the tape recorder, Mr. Boswell. I don't need you to tell me that the Church tells you that you accept things on their own terms.

Anyway, you haven't done OT3 yet, have you? Have you done any of the OTs (or NOTs)?

How many of your close acquaintances are not affiliated with the Chruch? And how often do you see your Ethics Officer?

What beliefs? You don't even know what my beliefs are. For that matter, neither do I.

Then why did the Church issue directives to "Stamp Out Squirrels"? -- It's because you...piss...me...off. -- Russ Smith, in rec.games.mud, said to Bruce Woodcock
