I'd like to officially apologies to pigs everywhere.

Earlier I made a post called, "Never try to teach a pig to sing..."

It's from an old joke/parable/cliche:
"Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and it annoys the pig."

This quotation has been traced to Heinlein (whose experts refute that it is his) and Twain (who has the same refutation {Oh, my what a word})

I used it in a vain attempt to clarify a Fundamentalist Christian's views on Paganism and Atheism. I have finally determined the definition of "Fundamentalist" that makes me most happy. A fundamentalist is someone who so blindly follows the teachings of their faith that they in fact become a danger to any reputability that faith may actually deserve.

And for those that know me.. I've met more than one Fundamentalist Thelemite.

So, I went to investigate his journal to see exactly how bad he was...

And as a result, I would like to apologize to pigs everywhere.

Translation... Suckered in by a troll. Blah
An excellent article on the (lack of) care and (not) feeding of trolls
