“The thread ran out of Reply buttons, but I did save your recommendations to a less ephemeral document for later follow-up. I'm a non-observant Jew, and, though I don't care for the theology, we read; boy, do we read. I do find the phenomenon interesting, so the suggestion is appreciated. Cheers.”

“Organic pork? Sorta like "compassionate conservative."”

“A lot of organic food is meat. I was surprised to hear that. I have had organic pork and it is a lot better tasting. Less artificial in color.”

“Thanks for the suggestion, morby, but theism doesn't appeal to me any more than Elwood P. Dowd's six-foot invisible rabbit, Harvey. At least Harvey wasn't recycled human sacrifice, which to me is a big part of the appeal of the Jesus myth.”

“Do you have even half a clue how "small business" is defined when the GOP throws that term around? It includes any business conducted as a partnership. By the numbers, most of the income attributable to "small business" is from huge corporate law practices, accounting firms, and financial and real estate partnerships. Real mom & pop stuff. Put your flag away, Yankee Doodle.”

“Thanks, I really do appreciate your thoughtful reply. However, please understand that I'm every bit as much inclined to read the works you suggest as I would be any thesis that, for example, extolls the divine nature of a bag of frozen peas. Your theism has that much spiritual and intellectual appeal to me.

I don't claim to have the Answers, but I look askance at anyone who says they're contained in a book written by people with agendas. I don't deny miraculous nature of life and the universe. I just have more respect for divinity and transcendence than to equate it with a guy. Or a bag of frozen peas. Cheers!”

“You might want to read some of the books of Bart Ehrman... he is a professor of religious studies at the U of North Carolina, chapel hill. "Jesus, interrupted", "misquoting Jesus" are a few. I think you would find them most enlightening.”

“Peer pressure. To admit you are agnostic or atheist takes a deep breath and courage when the only acceptable answer is, "(some variation of 'Christian'")”

Tom McCool on Oct 10, 2011 at 11:42:39

“Because my church allows questions. Not all churches are like those described in this article. What this article shows is that the Emergent Church movement is growing. Read Brian McLaren, Dallas Willard, Jim Wallis, Tony Jones, and now even Rob Bell is joining in. I could list many others. For a sensible interpretation of the gospels, read anything that N.T. Wright has authored. Not all churches, or Christians, are dogmatic, literalist, fundamentalists. It's just that those folks get most of the air-time.”

“Well, if there was actually magic I would go back :D

The last time I checked it's still just some old white guy spouting spouting how godly Fox News and the Republican party are.”

“Why the heck should I come "up with something? There's plenty all around me. Sure, there are a lot of things I don't know: I don't know what will happen after I die. I don't know what I'm having for lunch tomorrow. (I do hope I found that one out first.) That's OK with me. I think anyone who's got to memorize some children's tale about magic beings demonstrates a lot more fear than someone who is most interested in the here and now.

Sorry you're tired of reality. Go take a rest, and leave the responsible adults alone, OK?”

“so have you researched your theory that ALL Christians are money grubbing exploiters of the poor ? Don't argue the same stupid argument based on ignorance. IF you are so responsible come up with more than grudges and opinions...until then you are in my prayers”
