Some comments from this devotee...and I'll keep them
short...these discussions can go on
forever...Devoteeism is an orientation (heard that of
late and I think it works) the way homosexuality is.
This is not intellectual, this is some brain wiring.
It is not the same as red hair or big boobs, Regine,
the woman can choose boob size and hair color. She
can't choose to have her limbs back...If the amputee
accepts the overture of a devotee, that is for her to
decide. One can find as many arguments for saying why
not as never.
