Aren't we all KROMM? I mean, by the Divine Glory of KROMM's light shining upon us, don't we get a bit of His Divine Nature?

Theologists do not agree on this point.

One camp argues that as KROMM is clearly infinite, it makes no sense to say that some parts of the world are cut off from him. It is, therefore, necessary that all things are KROMM, as He is all things. We call them PanKRMOMMists.

Another camp argues that although KROMM is infinite, He is also omnipotent. Ergo, while He could be in all things, He can choose not to. Therefore, the location of KROMM at each moment in time depends on His Holy Will and is unknowable, as we are both incapable of grasping the enormity of his mind and should someone manage that, KROMM would simply be able to move to where we didn't know where he was. We call these Shrödiger's KROMMagnostics.

The third camp is of the opinion that KROMM is far too well-mannered to be mucking about inside of people and that he prefers to stay in Quebec, in any case. We call these teleKROMMuters.

I will not contribute to the Age Of KROMMpostasy by denying any form of KROMM's Divine Glory. May we all live in eternal beliS, shone upon us by KROMM's Divine Inspiration As Brought To Us Through The GURPS Line.

I believe that I have become one of the teleKROMMuters and would like to mention that while I believe that all should follow the path of the teleKROMMuters, I also believe that [B]KROMM would sooner have diversity and, therefore, that I must not insist upon forcing my beliefs upon any other worshipper because that would be contrary to the path of the teleKROMMuters and the other worshippers of KROMM.

She also has a trickster aspect, be warned. When last we met, she yanked my hair. This goddess is half in shadow.

That's the sign of a great goddess, that she can yank Our Line Editor's hair without major remorse.

O, speak again, bright angel! for thou art
As glorious to this night, being o'er my head
As is a winged messenger of heaven
Unto the white-upturned wondering eyes
Of mortals that fall back to gaze on him
When he bestrides the lazy-pacing clouds
And sails upon the bosom of the air.

I was thinking about including a real post, asking about the circumstances of the meeting and the theological implications of a Shadowy Goddess, but I decided to let Shakespeare's words stand by themselves. 'Tis a rare pleasure when one discovers that classical authors have done all the work for one and that no modifications were needed to make it fit the Holy Mother Thread. ;)

Or a sign of His Infinite Mercy, of course.

Or that He has a special place in His Heart for Gamer Chicks, half in shadow, and does not smite them for their transgressions lest they stop gaming, leaving him Lord of an all-male hobby.
