    The left claims to represent Christianity simply by claiming that the Right does not.
    But I'm good with the rest of your post.

    I'm not an atheist, but I see your point.

    I believe my point stands as well though. There's a deep sense of justice that occurs when fake pious people get exposed for their chicanery. One of the best ways is to hoist them on their own petard.

    First and foremost the American Taliban cannot claim to be followers of Jesus and then wave around the Old Testament as an excuse for persecuting gays.

    My favorite is that the American Taliban supposedly emulates a savior who was wrongfully convicted and then executed. AND they are the most blood thirsty in calling for the death penalty. There is no way to reconcile those two positions, and leave these idiots with any semblance of integrity.

    They are, however, as a bloc, dangerous. As we've seen.

      I do see your points.  I just get tired of the conversation being tied to religion/Christianity/Mormonism.   It's like watching tires spin in mud.

        ...most of the people in the religion pie fight DO NOT BELIEVE in the crap they're spewing.

        They're just doing it to sucker in the gullible quasi-religious voters.

        Time for a shower...
