Sometimes the best advice is, "Don't just do something. Stand there!"

Here's something that I think is a fairly realistic way to cause a schism in a fantasy religion....

The church only recognizes sainthood after death. Surprisingly, one of the older saints is unexpectedly resurrected (by a differently religious cleric), resulting in a split in the church between those who recognize the living saint and those who refuse.

Simple, basic, yet probably fundamental enough to really inflame the theologically minded ("Certainly no real saint would return when standing in the presence of our deity!" vs. "It's obviously a sign from our deity that we are to listen even more closely to the saint's words.")

APRILFLASH is the new Lulu Coupon code for 25% off all books until  April 30th at 11:59pm. So, if you liked Malevolent & Benign (after checking out the $3 PDF sale), you could now pick up a hardback version for only $30. Not too shabby.

As a reminder, Manevolent & Benign (my 1e critter compendium) PDF is staying on sale for $3 only for today and tomorrow. If you've been holding back, time to pull the trigger. It's 150+ critters full of goodness.

Just put the digital ink on the next 16 tomes in the Tome of Tomes series. That means I've created all the tomes for the month of May already. I'm really glad for my Patreons that have allowed me to justify the  time and creative energy needed to produce these. Thanks all!

For those saying same-sex couples should be patient and not push for change until more of the nation supports them, consider the following two images - polls from Gallup.

The majority of the nation didn't approve of mixed-race marriages until around 1996 - 29 years after Loving v. Virginia. To put that in perspective, it was only FIVE YEARS before Suzi and I got married that the majority of people thought it was acceptable.

Right now, same-sex marriage has roughly the same support that mixed-race marriages did in 1996.

The time is now. The time was decades ago.

Also some of the flatness could be the 'pubs spent us into more debt, sent the economy into the toilet and we got into a war with Iraq (a war which used a lot of reservists who left medium paying jobs for lower paying army jobs that cut the amount of money being spent which contributed to a economic toilet flush) So that whole 1991-1994 thing could reflect that. On both graphs.

On days that I get down about the problems in the world, I try to remember that I make people happy for a living. Even if the happiness is only for a few minutes or hours, it's worth it, it has value. I also remember that the donations that I give in support of material matters (water, food, shelter) come directly from people that I have, hopefully, made happy.

On days that I'm down, I try to remember that there are positive circles, positive cycles. I can then turn towards the negatives with renewed hope and vigor.

Because I can (and because ello hasn't turned out well for me). If you're there, feel freed to friend or follow me. I'll need to spend some time hunting folks down.
