    It's probably time to CONFINE all clerics/religious-fundamentalists....until they're able to secure job-security, elsewhere....and, let Scientists take-over. ​

    "In fact, it was a secular Jew, the great German Jewish poet Heinrich Heine, who understood that despite its anti-Semitism and other moral failings, Christianity in Europe prevented the wholesale slaughter of human beings that became routine with Christianity's demise. In 1834, 99 years before Hitler and the Nazis rose to power, Heine warned:


    "A drama will be enacted in Germany compared to which the French Revolution will seem harmless and carefree. Christianity restrained the martial ardor for a time but it did not destroy it; once the restraining talisman [the cross] is shattered, savagery will rise again. . . . "


    What is needed today is a rationally and morally persuasive case for embracing the values that come from the Bible. This case must be more compelling than the one made for anti-biblical values that is presented throughout the Western world's secular educational institutions and media (news media, film and television).

    Not the Old Testament shit, silly. Christians are way past that crap. It's one of the reasons idiots find "contradictions" in the Bible.

    They can have all the religion they can tolerate.....as-long-as they keep it at home (or, their local self-flagellation emporium).

    Ya' start mixin'-'em-together....pretty-soon they're comparing notes....and, before too long, they're fightin' & killin' over who possesses the REAL Truth....and, the rest-of-us have another mess to clean-up.

    :rolleyes:
