Stick with it.

To whom it may concern:
I thought it was important to say what I said about the Bible because there are a lot of people that talk like real authorities on the matter but they are just hungry and thirsty clearly hear all points of views. I want to sincerely apologize if I have offended or hurt anybody or due to my comments.
Obviously, I may not have the credentials you want, nor a lot of history background; I do not have a lot of years in college nor have social positions that may help me to develop additional areas in my life but I am sure about one thing: my personal convictions based on my faith and experiences with God. I am still feeling free to express my feelings about any topic but never to IMPOSE, like others are trying constantly here. I do not know where we will go if we reject people because they do have an affirmative, positive and educational position in God (not a fanatical one) as I have been observing lately. Yes, maybe I should not have to talk about this topic anymore because I do not belong to your list. Hum, maybe what the JURORS on the topic have spoken is really the LAW. Perhaps somebody within the "IQ points" that you are expecting to have discussions with may set the appropriate tone for the discussion and express what I and millions like me believe without cohesion in this country. I understand... this is your democracy but mine is under God, and millions of people believe as I do.
I promise that I will not touch this point again. I will not bother you with "God" anymore...besides, I never thought that talking about the Supreme Being will bring such a big problem on the XX1st Century. I guessed that it was a good to share ideas about this in this way but this is not a good playground for it.. I guessed wrong... This did not surprise me because I knew this will happen but I never had a chance to feel this type of rejection and psychological persecution...myself.
Just remember this. Let's allow others to express themselves about these topics freely and in a highly respectfully environment. Do not show off like you are a "know-it-all" kind of attitude, with answers for all questions and THE AUTHORITY to say who is OK and who is ridiculous, nonsense, fanatic or old fashioned.
Maybe I am a little or big fool but maybe He is using me to bring more insights to somebody who is interested and that is the only thing that comforts me right now...
