    Yes! And to me that's what's so very odd about some of far right fundamentalists, and especially people who've been raised in the stuff, as Franklin Graham was. I mean, as a kid there's no escaping the Bible, it's an everyday fact of life, the family's spiritual meat and drink. And yet the adult that tends to emerge from all that intense Bible-study and Bible-based living seems strikingly often to have taken into him or herself nothing very deeply from the Good Book at all.

    As you say, all the great lessons, the ego-busters, the call to humility and the regard for meekness, Jesus' stories illustrating the virtues of compassion and forgiveness; the grave seriousness of the sin of pride - all of it washed in and out of their thoughts like water through a seive.

    God bless our tinfoil hearts
