     Nick seems to think that because I claim we are all Divine, that I
should show some respect to everyone no matter what level of degradation
that person has succumed too.

     This is clearly because Nick himself has no experience of the
Divine at all, certainly not in himself.

     Otherwise he would know that Divinity is not polite.

     In any case I reprint in their entirety three pages from ADORE that
at least delineate my view on the subject, right or wrong.

     Nick seems to be devoted to getting me to be polite to people.

     Nick can go to hell and stay there for ever for free.

     Politeness is a GAYNET rule.

     If you want POLITE discussion, go join GAYNET.

     I am no longer there.  You should have a fine time.

     In fact it was my experiences on GAYNET and Bill Sklar among many
others there, that lead me to devise and write the APL's for ADORE-L.

     ADORE-L was conceived and born in the cauldron of turmoil
that surrounded my nightmare with GAYNET.

     That pile of shit will never happen here.

     Anyhow, on Respect.

                               BASIC DUTY

        You are an OPERATING SYSTEM of MASTER and APPREHENTICE.

                SPIRITUAL MAJESTY and ENERGY arise from a
                      BALANCE of IDOL and WORSHIP,
                     ALONE and with EVERYONE ELSE.

         BASIC DUTY is to WORSHIP OTHERS as you are WORSHIPED.

                     If NO ONE has WORSHIPPED you,
              SOMEONE might want to GET the BALL ROLLING.


            WORSHIP is what a MASTER does to a PIG in a PEN,
       in the DREAM that ONE DAY the PIG will be BETTER than HE.

                 Any CELESTIAL ANYBODY has this DREAM.

                      WORSHIP is the way we WORK.

              WORSHIP stands for the SHIP of WORTHY WORK.

             WORK stands for Worship Omni Regent Kinghood.

                     Thus the two commandments are

                     WORSHIP OMNI REGENT KINGHOOD.
                     IDOL OMNI SOVEREIGN KINGSHIP.

   For a MASTER and APPREHENTICE, WORSHIP is the EFFORT of the MASTER
                  to make a MASTER of an APPREHENTICE.

               A MASTER of SOURCE is a MASTER of RESPECT.

          A MASTER does not have to RESPECT the APPREHENTICE.
               The APPREHENTICE does not RESPECT HIMSELF.

                  The APPREHENTICE is an APPREHENTICE
                                because
                     he is not a MASTER of RESPECT.

                   The APPREHENTICE will SUSPECT the
                  MASTER HOOD  WISDOM  and  INTENTION
                      of ANYONE that RESPECTS him.

     The APPREHENTICE RESPECTS his VIEW that he is NOT RESPECTABLE.

        This SOURCES APPREHENSION.  Thus the name APPREHENTICE.

                    It is WISE to RESPECT his VIEWS.


                               EXSCORPION

   The SCORPION has a POISON TAIL reaching over his own BACK so that
                         he might KILL HIMSELF.
            But the SCORPION never has the DECENCY to do so.

   Instead the MASTER finds the SCORPION DROWING in a POOL of WATER.
     In the MASTER'S effort to SAVE the SCORPION with his own HAND,
                  he is REPEATEDLY STUNG and FORCED to
                 DROP the SCORPION back into the WATER.

                 APPREHENSION is DROWING SCORPION HOOD.
                  APPREHENTICES are DROWING SCORPIONS.
                   They WONDER that they WANT to DIE.
                APPREHENSION is INDECISION on DOING IT.
      Hence they get into SITUATIONS where they are DYING ANYHOW.

              MASTERS spend their time SALVAGING SCORPIONS
                                  from
                 SELF-INFLICTED DROWNING SCORPION HOOD
                                  with
                               INTENTION
                                   to
                              RENDER THEM

                     EXSCORPION MASTERS of SOURCE.
