     The origin is contained in the REVIEW of this list.

     If that does not answer your questions then I can be more
specific if you prod me with exact questions.

     Basically ADORE is my own personal effort to write
a divine operating religion of excellence, one that would be
both sensible, workable and just.  One that I adore.

     I had the name 'A Divine Operating REligion' long
before I saw that the first letters spelled ADORE.

     It was quite a surprise the day I tried to find an anagram
for it, and looked at the first letters of the words.
>I saw your posting in frac-l about sending flames directly to you,

>they should be pretty interesting.

     I only received two serious flames, both of which
turned out to be very immature people who were terrified I was
more immature than they were.

     I received a LOT of welcome postings about how great it
was I was going to start this list, but that I should have
cooled it a bit on the initial posting.

     The initial posting was written for DISARM-L and POLITICS,
and was sent to ETHICS and FRAC-L as an after thought.
That was a minor boo boo.

     Neither DISARM nor POLITICS have taken up the subject.

     As for posting the flames here, I will think about it.

     No sense poking a mad dog.
