God Loves GLBT TooLet me start out with a little bit of an introduction. I am a conservative Christian. Incidentally, I myself cannot support the homosexual lifestyle. But today I heard something that appalled me. In my sister's digital imaging class one of the political posters had GAY as an acrostic: "God Abhors You." If there's one thing I hate, it's lying. I don't do it anymore. And I'm here to tell everybody that the aforementioned slur is in fact a flat-out lie.God Loves GLBT Too3 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This

Love and warThis is designed to give you a feel for the Almaarian language. Eventually I hope to put up some audio so you understand what it’s supposed to sound like, but for the most part, the accents lengthen vowels, the ‘ø’ has the sound of the German vowel “ö” in ‘stören’ and finally, the ð is a soft th sound while the þ is a hard one.Love and war3 months ago in Academic Essays More Like This

The Account of Snorri Rangnarssonar
This is the account of Sorri Ragnarssonar, as taken from the book Snorrisaugar.
Snorri Ragnarssonar was born to Anna Mardonsdåttir and Helden Ragnarsson. Although he lived with them, Snori took the name Ragnarssonar, meaning 'Ragnar's Grandson'. This was due to his close relationship with his grandfather; his real father was a drunk and a thief.
Snorri's father was finally put in prison for stealing several pieces of jewelry from a neighbor. At this time, Snorri was 16, which was the age of manhood on Ancient Alba. Since he had denounced his father's name and instead taken
