Religious sites often have a statement of faith. I don’t like’em. Nor creeds. I like to stick with the Bible. When you stay with it, you’re doing good.
But for some directories and such, they require it. So here is my attempt to satisfy them while avoiding a creedish statement. I’m sure I’ll be polishing this for a while.
