Your juvenile rants against all things religious.

On the contrary. I don't rant against all things religious. In fact I have a rather profound respect for many practitioners of many faiths. I respect those who actually practice the Christian faith most particularly. My most profound friends (on FR and otherwise) are devout Christians.

But unfortunately those who actually practice the faith are exceedingly rare. A fair number simply profess it, while acting like sanctimonius self-righteous jackasses.

It is THEY (those who think Jesus told them to spit in the eye of their fellow men while proclaiming their own righteousness) who draw my criticism. And rightfully so.

And of course that criticism is always scorned as "Christian bashing" by the most obnoxious and petty of self-righteous self-absorbed dunderheads... Because they pridefully look at any criticism of their own actions, as criticism of Christianity....

But of course if they were behaving like Christ instructed, they wouldn't have drawn the criticism to begin with.

Never seems to dawn on 'em though.

There is a lot of truth in that.

And of course you always know exactly how Christ would have behaved...
