    Good to know.

    Too bad you don't notice I'm trying to teach Christians how they can rebrand and I get attacked.

    And people wonder why I can't trust Christians.

      I certainly trust you.

    •  You are on a fool's errand, Horace (1+ / 0-)

      There are much more effective things that you could do. Something Gandhian, Kingian, Mandelan, in opposition to evil but not shouting at it. In fact, I notice you doing some of it.

      Yes, we noticed. They think that a frontal attack on the rest of us is the thing, the particular thing that God commanded. It is fizzling. They are losing millions of young people every year. We do not think that God has commanded us to be idiots of that same kind.

      It is difficult to determine what is best to do in many situations, but that is not one of them. For example,

      Do not pray to be seen of men.

      One man prayed, "I give thanks that I am not as other men, even as these [sinners]," while the other prayed only, "Be merciful to me, a sinner." I tell you that the second will go home justified rather than the first.

      By their fruits ye shall know them.

      Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou become like him.

      Shouting can get some on TV. Doing right has always gone viral, even though only among a minority in the past. Today it is reaching a majority in the US, and is increasingly heard worldwide.
