    Educating the smart ones, whilst continuing to divide them over their petty squabbles is how we eventually end the Xtian hegemony in America.

      Pretty much. Fundies vs Everybody Else. Mainline Christians have far more in common with Atheists now than Evangelicals. If nothing else, we're the ones following Jesus' teachings.

        You know what I thought about in church yesterday: so many people pray while never realizing that 95% of the time, they are the answer to their prayers. Remember "Dogma?"

        Bethany: Why doesn't "God" do something?
        Metatron: He could, but he wants you to do it.

            One church puts on a Pub Theology every Wednesday and it's not even theology, it's more of a philosophy club. Kep and Fade would be more than welcome here. Drink, eat fried food and appetizers plus whatever you want from the pub, and have a good discussion for an hour and a half.

              That would be awesome.

              Pub Theology theology would be awesome too!

                A few years ago, our Free Thinkers congregation had a weekly"class" on the philosophy of religion. Basement venue. Maybe 20 people, mostly college educated (one of whom was transitioning M>F, Miss T). The leader was a young organic farmer who had graduated from U of Chicago divinity school. He had a passion for the material and was extremely patient with our crude grasp of the readings. Getting back into that kind of reading and discussion is like getting back into exercise when you have been sedentary for years. The simplest exercises are difficult at first, and although it starts to feel good to go through the steps again with a more mature body, it becomes frustratingly clear that some capacities will remain out of reach without a substantial investment of time.

                But it's worth the time and effort, whether it's over beer or coffee. It gets us out into the sunlight for periods of time, even though our senses have been dulled by the darkness of the cave and we stumble around a lot.

                    If I admit that it was unwitting, that will explain why and how much I struggle with religious philosophy.

                        I'm sure that's not how you lead people to Christ.

                          I have no idea why people interact with these loons. Ignore them. If they touch you (oh please, oh please, oh please) arrest them for assault.

                            I have a feeling there are mental issues going on there and something made her snap. That's not normal, even for thumpers.

                                Before I even clicked this, I knew it would be Macomb County or Downriver. That area around Anchor Bay is the kind of jumped-up white trash who thinks they're better than they are because half their net worth is sunk into a 30 year-old cabin cruiser and a few jetskis. It's like Key Largo, but colder.
