From The King James Bible (Commonplace Book)

"Wherefore I say unto you: all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men." (Matthew 12:31)

"But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation." (Mark 3:29)

What is the sin that shall not be forgiven? Nobody knows, though footnotes to the bible, which conflict each other, try to make people feel like this passage is not something believers should worry about. It is all quite obscure; and that's an area where you want a lot of obscurity -- on the subject of the secret crime against god that cannot be forgiven. One of my favorite bits in the bible.

I'm pretty sure most bigots would like to believe being gay is unforgivable.

I'm with Hawthorne; it's the violation of the sanctity of the human heart.

I just read the first Volume of "Spidey loves MJ" based on your recomendation. At first You thought the writing was awful and the characters action were illogical. Then I realized that's pretty much how a teenage girl acts, so the writing was good. haha

Oh, and the relationship between Peter and MJ is so adorable. It's kinda nice to see simply Peter Parker: Dorky-Guy instead of Peter Parker: Spider-Man. With the exception of Paul Jenkins, I can't remember a writer in recent years that's properly shown Peter as simply Peter. Well I can honestly say I never would have read if not reading your review.

Off subject, but who do you think would win in a fight between, my childhood hero, "Rabid Wolverine" Chris Benoit and Hugh Jackman?

Pat Molar: I am glad you liked it. And I have no idea, for your last question.

You spelt my name wrong. It's moler like the animal/spy+R not the tooth. It's a common mistake. So I forgive you.

Like I said what I liked most was seeing simply Peter Parker. He was also a snappy dresser. Wearing my trademark sweatshirt collared shirt combo. Though he lacked the freakish Muscular to give ir that unique look like myself. haha..eh..
