I don't care what Q said - he isn't the Bible.

Have you noticed where they have been going to when they flee the Muslim hate zones? Are you aware of the severe brain drain in Palestine over the past twenty years due to the flight of the Christian population?

I am turned off by the very nature of religion being infused into politics.

Here is a hint - it starts with the letter "P" and ends with harisees. ing:
Cool, so this means NO taking scripture out of context by anyone, or just those who point out inconsistency in christian thought.

Be careful what you ask for.



Oh, and in the post section around posts 30-40, did any of the other recovering Southern Baptists get a shivering deja vu of bible drills gone bad?

This is borderline racist. Is there a word for racism, except as it applies to people of a religious belief? Because that's what this is.

Interesting question. It brings a new dimension.

Apparently there is a contingent that believes that Christians are just smarter than Muslims. I don't know if this is the same collective that believes that whites are smarter than blacks [we did lock down that thread].

Yes, the word is bigotry.
