    misunderstood poll & voted yes. I'm course I'm a NO.

    I'm a Christian with a faith of  doubt. I don't think one can be intelligent & not have doubt in matters of religious faith, & I fear those who have no doubts, who apply their
    "holy scriptures" with brutal literalism because some person writing as a deity commanded  that humans be killed for reasons that have no relevance to us now. They had relevant reasons for some of them then. Was a bad  idea to eat certain kinds of meat known on occasion to release demons into one's body that made one sick to death.  Reasonable  rule back then. Then we learned it wasn't demons, or vapors, but Trichinella spiralis.  Marry one's dead brother's widow? Also a pretty good idea, one has responsibilities to care for women  made helpless by  rules making women powerless.

      The statement,  "We're a nation that believes that we're all children of the same god," is delusional yet widely held.  I would rephrase it as "We're a nation where those who believe in God want to believe that we believe we're all children of the same god."
