and anyone who judges a person's self esteem based on a blog is, well, judgmental.
While I am not personally a fan of liturgical systems of worship.... I will say this
You should realize that you are publicly writing against religion. You are, in fact, perpetuating the discussion of religion in an open forum!(gasp)...are you feeling just a bit like the pot calling the kettle black?
I suppose it is ok to discuss religion and worship in a public forum but only when it is from your own negative and reactionary perspective?
According to your own logic you have drunk your own grape flavored-ade. Don't forget that we are free to express our opinions in this country...the post you responded to did not attack you at all...it seems that you have some really big issues with religion in general and are using this public forum to express those views.
Your post is more of a personal affront than the blog that you are reacting to.
Either you are ok with discussing these things in public....
your will stick by your public code of conduct and stop posting on this subjects thread.
I will see your continued posting as a good sign that you have changed your mind about discussing "personal" "religious" and "worship" oriented subject in public.
Time will tell i guess...

It's always refreshing to here that there are more people out there who are in this service centered business with a spiritually meaningful desire to serve, and not out of a shere need for a paycheck or a good cup of coffee.
