    and thanks for the reasoned input

    bear in mind those articles were written for a different audience - I just thought that with all the religious ills articles here recently they were worth throwing back into the debate.

    Another reason I get uppity is because the US religious do not keep their ugliness within their own borders. The right winger elements are exporting it en masse to Africa and parts of Europe like my own green and pleasant land. Fundys and Creationists are making inroads into the UK thanks to Cameron and the Tories like the excremental Baroness Warsi.

    At the end of the day I approach the fight as a secularist. I don't really care one whit what you choose to believe in (that's your intrinsic and inalienable right) as long as those beliefs have NO direct influence on social policy.

    Funnily enough, one of my favorite quotes and maxims I try to live by is a strictly Christian one (from the Gospel of Mark):

    For what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but in the process looses his soul?

    Obviously I just define the word soul a little differently. I think that is one of the most beautiful stanzas in the whole Bible.

    Once again thanks for the input and good luck on your search.
