Because I have a big heart.

Indeed, I would say that they are. Get it now?

We all find our spheres of influence where they are, I guess.

Hmmm...that sounds like "belief":

conviction of the truth of some statement or the reality of some being or phenomenon especially when based on examination of evidence

Deist belief is very different from christian belief. That was mine.

Ok, I will. Hey...you aren't actually George Bush are you?

You just happen to swallow his rhetoric hook, line, and sinker. Gotcha.
