    There are plenty of Christians that are just plain nasty people.  Robertson, Falwell, Dobson, Graham, etc....

    •  Yes. But if you read the book, and the teachings (1+ / 0-)

      that the religion is based on, those people are posers.

      That's the problem. They are grifters corrupting the title to steal a lot of money, but they are not Christian. Any more than the Catholics who use their position in the "church" to molest children over and over, and then cover it up, are Christian.

      •  So what you're saying is (0+ / 0-)

        "no true Scotsman".

        •  I don't know what no true Scotsman means. (0+ / 0-)

          I would offer up, as an example of a true modern day leader who was also a Christian-

          Dr. Martin Luther King.

          You can often tell the true followers of Christ by the fact that all the other people who say they are Christian are trying to kill them.

          I am not saying that a person must be perfect to be Christian. The whole point of Christ's death was that none of us are perfect. But when people come in the name of God to get rich  by preaching hatred, well, how obvious does it have to be? Not Christian.  

          •  I shouldn't have said all the other people (0+ / 0-)

            who are Christian, I should have said the ones who are seeking control, or who are afraid of losing their power.....  Never the less, true believers and followers tend to be targets.

            Forgive the hyperbole.
