Concerning the last episode of LT a couple of months ago, I've been feeling for some time now that I overstepped the line on religion. Nobody's said anything to me about it, but that doesn't make me feel any better. I just haven't felt comfortable since with something that was gratuitous and definitely not called for.

I sincerely apologise if the story offended anyone because, even if it didn't, it was disrespectful and could have. Might be better if it was taken down, in fact.

But the bit about Donald, now, that's a different kettle of fish. He can take it on the chin.

Why are you apologising on behalf of LT? He's his own man, isn't he? Anyway, I don't think you need worry too much, word on the street is that yiir maan JC is quite big on the forgiveness thing, so long as you put a smile on our faces…

Best play it safe, though: go for a nice long jog down the coast to Compostela. You're almost there already, after all. Go on… left a bit, left a bit…

forgiveness Apr 17

There is forgiveness where there is repentance. I forgive and forget, but each person must repent before the One who is truly scorned in order to receive His forgiveness and mercy.

I don't think you need to worry, or apologise. The world is way too busy being offended. And I thought it was very funny.

All the best comedy is going to be offensive to those who lack a sense of humour.

Dare you to do Mohammed too.
