I'm a Descendant of Him Dec 31, 2007
I'm a descendant of him, this was written the day before the New Year of 2008. Other authors are missing the whole point of this denomination- pilgrim. It's like Catholic taken to an extreme. The plural, pilgrims, refers to those 102 who landed on the Mayflower. There's not many in Europe. They got rid of anything supernatural from the Holy Bible with the 1611 King James- the year 1611. The idera isn't gothic- that was the fashion back then in plantation days, with often a black rimmed hat and black and white outfits with buckled shoes. It wasn't to shock people. That was the sense of fashion back then, like the knights in armor was the fashion in the dark ages to the very early 1500s. The Middle Ages ended with Martin Luther's 95 Theses. You no longer could only be baptized as an infant and they no longer could only be the religion their king or prince picked. The debate was if they were freeloaders. The whole idea was the trash farm, for both rich and poor. Rich people would buy a lot of stuff to save it for future generations and barely non for right here right now. When the poor wanted something, they used it that day and wanted it to last. The war with the idians was the idea of supremacy, and today every continent was bought out for cheap with the U.S. dollar. Other currencies could've had an edge on the almighty U.S. dollar, but they couldn't upkeep it. That's where the word fag comes from - referring to a European Christian. As an evangelist for a local church this denomination, the gay marriage thing, well the congregation myself is mixed in with the lost because you couldn't pigeonhole yourself you had to customize it, with we get from Aleister Crowley. And again the clothes weren't to shock people. The Amish got rid of anything supernatural, period. Is this what a denomination with humor is coming to? Well, look up the history of it. The homo essence as acceptable goes back to pre Hellenistic Greece and Rome. So, o.k. go that far back. They even had laws banning it, it is therefore a crime. The joke's on you. The priest there saw how many would want it, so they could nail them for a crime. That is not a modern issue. Free air IS!

A Pilgrim Boy Dec 15, 2004
"I am so weary yet I must write. I have been ashore! How strange it is to cast an eye on the nearby forest and not know what manner of beast was watching you".
What you just read was a quote from The Journal of Jasper Jonathan Pearce. Jasper Jonathan Peirce was a young pilgrim boy on the Mayflower. The book gives us a look at pilgrim lifestyle. It tells what happened from the first time someone stepped on Plymouth to the Thanksgiving feast. I would recommend this book for eight year olds and over. The book is very unique because instead of chapters it has entries, just like real journal would give this book an eight out of ten. I liked this book because it really happened. If you are interest in history you should buy this book.
BORING! Apr 5, 2004
This book was about a boy named Jasper Jonathan Pierce, an orphaned indentured servant who is in search for a better life. (...). This was the worst book I have ever read in my entire life (I have read a lot of books)! This was one of the first historical fiction books I have read and it will be the last! Nobody on the face of the Earth should read this book! It was not exciting at all and I did not like one thing about it!
Boooooooooooring! Apr 2, 2004
This is a great book . . . if you're looking for a historical fiction reference guide on Plymouth. This book is about a boy named Jasper who lives a hard childhood but then he goes on the Mayflower as a servant from England to America. On the way almost half the people die but the people who are left on the ship go on to settle and start the colony of Plymouth. I think that no one in the world is low enough to read this book! It is horrible! It is boring! I don't recall even one exciting part in the entire book! This was one of the first historical fiction books I have ever read and it will certainly be the last! Even if there is no other book in the world to read except for this one because all the other books were all lost with the island of Atlantis, (you get the picture) don't read it! I have never read a book so horrible in my entire life! Ever!
(P.S. I have read a lot of books. Good books and bad books. And by the way, I wanted to give this book no stars but one star was the lowest thing!)
