yeah, this is not quite the credited response


I would say if you think you can write a compelling PS about this topic, and it doesn't just come off as rambling complaints about organized religion, then go for it.

I'm just sayin', if it is something you feel you want/ need to write about don't make assumptions about what makes adcomms uncomfortable.

It has been sad for me too.   :(

I've been dealing with a lot of moving stuff, plus this weird girl.  Long story.
