    Maybe she's just trying to be respectful.

    This reminds me of the Life of Brian...

    All I said was this piece of fish was good enough for Jehovah!

    Jehovah! (dancing around) Jehovah! Jehovah!

    What a crock! Not that I am an antisemite, but the Jews were the ones who defaced God's name. He gave us His name so that we could identify Him and call on Him. He gave us His name with the intention that we would USE it. The ancient Jews made the decision that God's name was too holy to be used, and changed it. Thus, we no longer know the exact pronunciation of the name of our own God. IMO it was more disrespectful to disregard God's gift of intimacy than to utter or write His name. Why would He give us His name if He didn't intent for us to use it? :duh3:

    Grump is an example of people who feel free to mock Christians at will.

    Looking at it from a different point of view, I suppose it WOULD seem extremely odd, even slightly insane, to think of communicating with a spirit. I just feel bad that there are people who may never know that soft, gentle Presence. :(
