    Not poor faced po faced. maybe it's a peculiarly british expression.

    Well excuse my lack of understanding the difference. I often have troubles following cross culture insults.

    you have to learn to look those things up before responding.
    I know that I have.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    To be fair, po faced is not an insult, gmc was, I think, describing the confusion of the, for example, Hindus, Muslims and atheists finding themselves in a Christian Heaven being welcomed by the Christian God.

    Unless, as I do, you read "in my father's place there are many mansions" as saying that Heaven consists of many areas, one for Christians, One for Hindus, one for Muslims etc - there being one God and the different religions focus on different aspects of the same God.

    it is not an insult , simply my misunderstanding of it. In my view, the " Many Mansions" , means just that- big mansions to live in. And in God's kingdom, in my view, there will be no Christians , no Hindus, no Muslims ect.. Those labels will no longer exist; there will be no religions in the Great kingdom of God. There is no evidence at all to support any religion being revealed in the Kingdom; also there will be no laws there either. Gal. 5:23

    It wasn't an insult nor was the comment actually directed at you indeed you seem quite a happy person. Rather at the more puritanical of the religious sects who regard excessive jollity as the path to hell. Mankind is put on earth to suffer and die thats why he comes in to the world crying didn't you know it was our punishment for original sin? Read the bible and stop skipping through all the bits that are depressing.

    Don't tell me you haven't meet those believers revelling in their misery resentful of the happy people around them? That's what's wrong with most religious fundamentalists of whatever stamp. Miserable bastards that don't see why anyone should enjoy life.
