    I've found that someone can make the Bible say and mean whatever they want and can, in their own mind, consider themselves correct about it. I'm not sure how you combat that.

    just a little bit bored.

    •  here's the thing (0+ / 0-)

      Jesus - that man Christians are all into - was a JEW. The Torah is the book of the JEWS.  So there was a whole context that Jesus the Jew lived in that modern Christians have no expertise in because they have no CONTEXT.

      Context renders things like "eat shimp - go to hell" laughably stupid.  Context explains why Jews don't stone their kids for being chutzpadik - despite following all those laws in the Torah.  Stop allowing fundamentalists to mark out the playing field.

      You make them doubt their "understanding" by consistently hammering them every single time they bring it up with CONTEXT.  That little worm of "what if they are right about that?" will eat away at them every single time they are bitchslapped with CONTEXT everywhere they go.  Stop letting the idiots run the asylum.  Stop letting the ignorant define the words.  The only last words the willfully stupid should have on the subject is "I don't want to talk about it anymore."

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
