Just dropping you a hello from another friendly Denverite :)
Amen to you comment "I just couldn't accept that "our" version of God was better than everyone else's. If there really is a God, and he wants us to worship in a particular way, I'd think he'd be a lot more clear in his message. To do otherwise is setting us up for failure. In all honestly, I wouldn't want to worship a God like that."
I think that's wacked that God is all powerful, doesn't give us the power to always to the right thing, (even though he can), and then send us to Hell for screwing up. Even insane people are less sadistic than that.
Hey, just saw here that you are nearing the end of the first trimester for bean sprout number two. Congrats! My wife is right behind you with our first. I also do not anticipate either of us forsaking reason due to the "miracle" of creating babies.
