You have captured my thoughts exactly. Love it!
Sick Boy chapter 1 . 1/6/2005
You bare naked truth, you wave it about like a banner, and for that I may praise you. The message this poem delivered was beautiful and true to your heart, as are many of your others, which in time I may come to read.

I know the nature of sin, it is not found in pride or honor as you say, but it is found in submission. There are those who would submit to evil, submit to religion and the Heretic God. And no, the Heretic god is not the devil, but the Christian god, have the faithful remember that.*grins*
Re chapter 1 . 2/27/2004
i loved your poem. I don't really favor that specific type of free verse (though that's just personal preference), but such candidness is so very wonderful (and well respected). i understand your viewpoint on many christian ideals (though i myself am christian- roman catholic [which is a really strict branch]), and i sympathize.
However, i am inclined to defend my religion to some extent. Yes, I believe there are boundaries set which should never be crossed for moral and ethical reasons, whether one is christian or no, whether one is prideful or no.
Right and wrong are sometimes clearly defined lines, and sometimes not. I try to be unbiased, but i always find myself thinking exactly what you yourself think (despite my religion). well, that was a rather long review, but anyways...Bravo! love your poem! And your way of expressing feelings brings to light many a contraversy.
Lady Unknown chapter 1 . 2/27/2004
I don't what kind of idiotic christians you've been targeted by but that is not how it is. We're all sinners even christians and christians believe that if you have accepted Christ into your heart as your lord and savior your saved. no matter how much you sin you'll go to heaven. But we want to please God. We want to try not to sin although let me tell you we fail miserably. It was a great poem and I know what you mean(kinda) cause I know christians like that but it's the wrong way to go about evangalising(sp?) but i just reall wanted to tell you that you are an amazing writer.
Redaura chapter 1 . 2/5/2004
My thoughts precisely. *nods* and i well written poem _
INTP chapter 1 . 12/26/2003
Whatever did Aleister Crowley do?
Well, the poem was great, especially the part on pride, even Aristotle wrote about the virtue of pride.
Written chapter 1 . 11/29/2003
_ Nice job! I'm a Muslim, and I can tell ya, i've been treated like a retarded child for not accepting the beliefs of the Christians I'm surrounded by. It's good that you don't dislike all christians though.
Moderation is always nice. _
Alyx chapter 1 . 10/3/2003
Is it possible disdain should die while she hath such meet food to feed it as Signior Agent? And I think you'll find you've misquoted.

As usual, you've missed the point because you're too busy passing judgment from your high and mighty throne. It makes me wonder why you bother trying to read and dissect my works at all, since you and I obviously aren't functioning on the same plane of reason. You've never made so much as an attempt to understand my sort of person, so I'm rather disinclined to give your opinion much merit. Good day.
De Miles Justus chapter 1 . 10/3/2003

"Why my dear lady Disdain! How is it that you still live and breath?"

Much Ado about Nothing

Hmm. Curious. You believe that it's honorable to only follow yourself? If you make laws only according to your own instinct and measure, you'll never do anything better than yourself. It doesn't matter how many internal amendments you believe you can set. You cannot change your nature.

And do keep in mind, HUBRIS is the single most detrimental and destructive quality of the human design. Famous people who have walked the way of their own pride have names like Hitler, Lenin, Pol Pot and Alister Crowley, just to name a few.

Aren't you tired yet?
Syo chapter 1 . 9/9/2003
hmm thanks for your criticism of my anti-christian poem, however unpleasant it may sound. i had intended for it to be some sort of a hate-only kind of expressive poem instead of an argumentative please-see-through-my-point kind of poem, but nevertheless.

i am as against christianity as you are (according to your note at the bottom) and yes it is indeed christians who target us the most, and i feel a exceptional irritation towards them.

i like your poem. their concept of sin has a truly immeasurable amount of absurdity.

"my moral laws are mine alone." - i loved that.
Unfinished Author chapter 1 . 9/7/2003
I liked this, it was very vivid in setting apart the two a sin and a moral wrong. I love it, really thought provoking, may i suggest an another authors poems that you might enjoy? werecat99 most of her poems are on cats but they're very spiritual in nature.
Angels Rebellion chapter 1 . 9/4/2003
A very deep poem with alot of cyncism, who couldn't enjoy it? Oh yeah, by the way, thanks for the review but I really would like to explain my position further so could you please check back on my bio so I can at least TRY to redeem myself? Thanks...
Selene Silverwing chapter 1 . 8/12/2003

careless whisper chapter 1 . 8/11/2003
I knew I liked you. Ingenious title and use of that theme. Well done, m'dear.
Diamond Shieldmaiden chapter 1 . 8/11/2003
Lovely, cherie. Very true and right to the point. (And why don't we see any egotistical Buddhists? Hm...) I love your poetry, and this is another great example.
