    And folks wonder why religion has a bad name.

    It's no wonder that different religions cannot get along when even different factions of the same religion can't.

    Jesus was the only saint to retire with a perfect record of 32-0-0.

    So it's not surprising.

    Sounds like the leaders of those churches should implement a few personnel transfers. I'm sure the world is full of pious clergy that would love the opportunity to live and work in Bethlehem and the offenders in the story allowed to rediscover their faith while ministering to converts in Nepal or something.

    You have got to be kidding me.

    That kind of behavior(and over which side of the church they were on?!) is exactly what gives the rest of us Christians a bad name. That and the people behind Chick tracts and WBC.

    I didn't realize that Jesus had designated certain sections for certain people.

    First thing is thought was:
    "Here's some more of that 'Love thy neighbour' and 'Turn the other cheek' hypocrisy again" :rolleyes:

    It's a simple concept: Religion isn't the problem, it's the people.

    The majority are credulous and stupid, but would like to believe otherwise. This manifests itself in lots of different ways, including religion, 'militant atheism' and positive-vibe ownership of an Apple after 6 months on the outside :p
