What? The pope isn't going to heaven? LOL!

EDIT: In case it wasn't obvious, I was being sarcastic. I've known for a long time the pope is going to hell.

I wasn't even talking about the Pope. I was talking about Jesus and what He told a rich king of His time. This had nothing to do with your post quoting mine, and nothing to do with the topic. Get back on topic before I report you to the Mods.

This thread should have been reported to the Mods when it was started and I think you might take a look at your codes of conduct [for others] and the threats to take your marbles and go home and ask yourself if that's how you want to be [perceived]. It's WWJD I think.

That code of conduct only applies to my blog IMHO. And no, I have not threatened other members to take their marbles and go home since that Code of Conduct has been posted. I have not violated it at all in the confines of that blog, have I? That's the only place where it applies. Elsewhere on these Forums, it's the Code of Conduct that you read when you signed up on LQ that you need to abide by.

The mods are fully aware of that too. And it will be dealt with in the appropriate fashion.

If you can't take the heat, don't start the flame.

GBH "Give me fire"


Quote:
Smoke and fire are burning bright we'll set the tinderbox alight
Rising from the ashes the phoenix lives
Life and death the red flame gives

Give me fire, on which I feed, give me fire, 'cause it's a need
Real fine I can tell, real fine really burns in hell

Take a breath the heat surmounts
Your mind wanders, you have your doubts
Brain goes numb, in the heat, body glows, you cling

Give me fire, on which I feed, give me fire, 'cause it's a need
Real fine, I can tell, real fine really burns in hell

Give me fire, give me fire, give me fire, give me fire

It's on my head if I burn, sit next to me and take your turn
Don't blame the flame by which I'm fueled
One day by fire we'll all be ruled

Give me fire, on which I feed, give me fire, 'cause it's a need
Real fine, I can tell, real fine really burns in hell, hell, hell
Way down you pay in hell

Give me fire, give me fire, give me fire, give me fire
Give me fire, give me fire, give me fire, give me fire

Give me fire, on which I feed, give me fire, 'cause it's a need
Real fine, I can tell, real fine really burns in hell

Give me fire, give me fire, give me fire, give me fire
