So Much Class!
Fun Fact: My Shipmate on the USS Frederick LST 1184 was a wanna-be banjo player and blue-grass dude. He tole me of a time he met Emmylou at a festival. She talked to him for thirty minutes! He Said she was so nice to him and encouraged him to pursue his dream
As I said:
Specifically: Southern Religion
More specifically: Texan Religion.
I am talking Methodists, Baptists, Church of Chist(ers)—the Entire Gamut of The Faithful.
I love all of Y’all.
No secret: “Lance is an Atheist.”
(This is well-documented.)
However, I do love AND RESPECT
All Folks of Faith.
I just do not roll that way.
But I love the music.
And I love the morality
(I have that too— ‘morality’—I do not need Religion to have that)
I love the culture of Faith.
I never mean to demean anyone of Faith.
My fervent wish is to never offend.
I have too much respect for Folks of Faith.
Too much respect For Fellow Texans,
most of whom are Religious.
(I was going somewhere with this post)
Probably to Hell.
I have read ‘The Iliad’
And ‘The Odyssey’
And All The Norsemen—Thor–in particular.
I have read ‘Beowulf’
And The ‘King James Bible.’
Read it Cover-to-Cover–Most Christians cannot make that statement in ‘Good Faith’–Yet I can, because it’s the truth.
All Great Mythology.
All Magnificent Literature.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but I know what I’m talking about.
(“One of these days I’ll look back and I’ll say I left in time.”)
We are, all of us, solely responsible for our own happiness, or un-happiness, It is all on us-
No-body else is responsible
