That of course is what Daniel means. Although it can also mean judge of God...
Daniel (or Daniyel) is a Jewish name and the most famous Daniel is the prophet who rose to prominence by interpreting a king's dreams. Daniel is one of the stars of the old testament becasue he lays it on the line about the coming of Armageddon, the rejection of Christ, the rise of the Anti-Christ and the end of the world.
How cool is that?
However, I wasn't named after him but the Elton John song of the same name. Thanks mum.
I must also add that at this juncture that I don't believe in God but I do believe in Elton John and I felt like drawing upon my name for some inspiration in the face of a recent withering blizzard of ignorance on this blog. People seem embittered by the Bush 'you're either with us or against us' doctrine and confuse lively debate on political matters as being anti-American. If you think I'm anti-American you should come over the "pond" and feel the love...
Sad news: Jodi preferred it when I talked about myself rather than my impassioned posts on global politics so she has stopped linking to me. I think she thinks I hate America (she is not alone) which is daft, I love it and that's why I care when it's being sold short by its political parties. She also didn't like it when I called Ariel Sharon a sweaty Zionist war criminal. You call it preaching Jodi and I call it speaking from the heart on what matters to me. I hope our paths cross again.
Red does have a point though about politics causing trouble but I'm a political person (aren't we all?) so it goes on.
Peace to you all...even the conservative flag waving maniacs!
