"The internet promotes vast amounts of information sharing -- but that information is not necessarily the truth.
I suspect that what the internet does is introduce people to CONSENSUS.
And what's the consensus on religion?
I think the consensus…"
"Just to be another voice in the chorus... ;)
The church did nothing to me that is doesn't do to everyone: bore me to tears once a week with a big Jesus Pep Rally. Yay Jesus. You're great. See ya next week to tell you how…"
"Tell ya what, Unseen.
YOU convince the country to spend the money to do it PROPERLY -- well-trained currently-active policemen acting as security guards, *NOT* minimum-wage bus drivers looking for extra cash (and fer chrissakes, not teachers in…"
"For what it's worth, one of MY favorite songs is "The Little Drummer Boy".
Can't help it. I just love that song.
Obviously, I don't believe the lyrics tell a true story. But then again, "Santa Claus is…"
"For what it's worth, I'm 44. And my mom (who I moved halfway across the country to avoid, for mental health reasons) *STILL* treats me like a child. Especially on the topic of religion.

"The point is, how are we going to tell him he's WRONG by electing Sarah Palin or her ilk?
Do you think ANYONE will look at a Sarah Palin win and say "gee, the country is leaning more liberal"?
We need to elect Obama --…"
"You vote for Obama in 2008 and so you are obligated to vote for him in 2012 no matter what he has done? Is that really the system that you want?
