    You're title has little if anything to do with that sermon or whatever it was supposed to be. Just because all the children under five believe in Santa doesn't mean he's real. That's how I feel about the stories in the Bible.

    Your title made me think how Christians persuade people into believing fiction is real.

    Actually HottJoe, the title of the topic is not Metta's; it's the title of the article. icon_wink.gif

    The article makes the error of assumption that there are only two types of christians. Really, there are many.

    You're right. Sometimes I can be hotheaded Joe.
    In my better moments I know I should avoid this topic.

    Sorry to the op.

    Hey, don't be so hard on you. You're a fresh voice, and those are always good to have around here!

    I completely understand your POV; I'm a christian that married an atheist, and
    loving every minute of it. icon_wink.gif
