Noel was a nice guy and was my friend. The fixation with imaginary Jesus was his only downfall. I often think I'd like to move back into community if it wasn't for the requirement to believe in the crazy fairy story that is Jesus. I can buy the tooth fairy, santa claus or the easter bunny but the Jesus thing is too evil in my opinion
