    so how do we disrupt their blocked brains long enough see if they are willing to think outside of the indoctrination?

    and sometimes, it's not indoctrination. it is a need to believe (to desperately hope) that some greater power is in charge... that someone or something is in control.

    perhaps second chances, salvation, and sanity are not so crazy for so many who lack any power or voice to define themselves or their lives.

    how does one make fit our needs together? how do we accommodate without compromising those things in which we believe?

    how do we live together?

      But part of it depends on presenting an alternative view of Christianity.  I wish that centrist and left of center denominations and congregations would speak up a little louder, get a little more active.  Perry and Bachmann illustrate the ability of the Christian Right to punch way above their weight.  There needs to be a sane Christian alternative, because us non-believers will always be a tiny minority.
