      But they, much like the blowhard jerks that Timeaus is fighting in court, are claiming the mantel of Christ in the public arena.

      It's why I love your sigline, a solid reminder that not all Christians are like that. I often try to use the term Xtian (or Xtian Xtremists) to differentiate them but I'll confess to taking short cuts.

      But I will respect you and Christians like you that stand up to these assholes. Sadly your good name has been tarnished by them and quite badly.

      Food processed to be nothing more than simple starches with two dozen flavorings and stabilizers added to make it appear to be food isn't "food". It's "feed" -- what you give to livestock to fatten them up for slaughter.

      •  That "X" of course, is not a term of (3+ / 0-)

        derision. It's a Greek letter, and the first letter of "Christ".

        I cannot imagine any catholic or orthodox Christian who would be offended by the "X" abbreviation. That includes Anglicans, like me: my great grandmother always used that ("Xmas") in her cards. She was born in 1894, in England, and died in 1986 in Massachusetts.

        Christianity, and I say this all the time, is not a monolith. However, I am a gentleman. Other people's religion is not my business. It would be rude of me to make it my business. However, when it comes to religion coming into the public sphere, I have a huge problem with that, and I make my opinion known.
