    There are two kinds of sinners in this world, those that attempt to lessen the burden of guilt with righteous aires and rabid condemnation of sin, and those that attempt to lessen the same burden by convincing themselves that their particular vices are not sinful.

    "airs"

    And you're wrong about sinners. Sinners are people who commit sins, i.e., violate any of the 10 commandments.

    What you describe is a scoffer's opinion of two types of believers.

    Seriously, Mani, I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. I don't think you're a racist at all. If you didn't want people's opinions on your Jewish joke, you should never have started the thread.

    Don't worry, I wasn't going to lose any sleep over it. I just can't bear the thought of your tears.

    I appreciate the feedback. However, to place my comment in a religious context is to miss the point.

    I'm not doing it. The language itself shows it for what it is.

    She's obviously not the only one that isn't getting your point.

    when you use the term "sinner" how can you expect not conjure up religion?
