in response to reader comment: I must appologise for my error

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jan 22, 2008 at 18:15

Thank you Seamus. I too consider myself to be a devotee of God being omnipresent. The reference to Shakespeare comes from the Merchant of Venice. The quote is:

Hath not a Jew hands, organs/ dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with/ the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject/ to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means/ warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer/ as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?/ If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you/ poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?" -Shylock, II.i.58.
