"stuff" in them. Much of the "stuff" is real junk of the basest sort you
could imagine. I usually delete without even giving them a second look.
I am not interested in clicking on some unknown link only to have a pound
and a half of some woman's putrid flesh staring me in the moxie. The one
you sent contained no salutation; no signature; no nuttin.. except a web
link. Additionally you sent it off list so I had no idea it was from
someone on one of the many lists I am subbed to. Ergo I delete and
request not to receive any more. Maybe if you would have at least said
who you were or what the link was about I might have considered it. But
now my question to you is... why did you send it off list but now call my
attention to it on the list? That certainly makes no sense. And yes I am
asking questions because I do want to learn what others believe about the
Bible and Christianity. I often get a "go to this link if you want to
find out" response and I simply do not have the time to follow every link
that folks want me to read. I see nothing inadequate with a simple
question and answer format. If a person cannot explain his position
without sending the enquirer all over the internet for answers then why
have 'discussion' lists at all. Don't get me wrong; web pages do have
their place but I do not believe they should take the place of a
question answer format.
So... lest I wax long-winded, if you send me anything else could you at
least tell me what it is and who you are? Otherwise I will probably just
delete it and ask not to receive any more "stuff". Thanks.

Only the federal government was originally bound by the
Constitution. Today it is treated as if it also binds all state,
county, and munincipal governments as well. It still does not bind
individuals. Otherwise you'd be required to tolerate free speech and
the free excercise of religion in your own house! The Constitution
is not a covenant that binds individuals, but a foundational law that
binds the government.
