    @jackflash & Wiser_now, why are you shooting the messenger? Why the attack? If you don't want to do what you are commanded to do by your deity, that's up to you.

    It's funny how anti-religious people so often mock people of faith for being too literal, then turn around and use such literal, unyielding interpretations themselves to try to corner the faithful. "Funny" as in hypocritical, that is.

    Anyhoo, my thoughts and prayers go out to the deceased and his or her loved ones.

    isiah3315 - you go ahead and pray for the man and his family.

    hereandnow - Why are you trying to create conflict where there is none? Slow afternoon? You go ahead and don't pray and I'm sure isiah3315 will have no objection.

    @isaiah3315, if you choose to try to communicate with your supernatural being, be sure to do so in the privacy of your own room, in the closet...and shut the door. In fact, you shouldn't even be telling us what you're doing lest you be labeld a "hypocrite...to be seen by men". Of course, that's only if you want to follow the words of Jesus speaking in Matthew 6:5-6.

    Until his name and some other description is released, I really don't see how the LEO would expect someone to call them and tell em how the body end up there.

    Well, last time I checked a body being found in Durham or anywhere else for that matter is not illegal or a crime. Now, if that body happens to be dead, then we have another story here. But I read the article and then re-read it and no where did it say that the body found was dead.
