    that the rich TV preachers of the Rick Warren ilk are utter frauds who know in their heart of hearts that it's all bullshit, but they've got such a sweet con going and so much cash flowing in that they aren't going to disrupt it by starting discussions now how they could have misinterpreted the "Bible" against their own interest.  

    Let's face it, those RWNJs who are raking in the money on the words in that book are among the biggest offenders violating it's tenets.  And it surely doesn't begin with them...the Catholics did a pretty fair job taking it all out of context and raking in the dough while burning folks at the stake, dispossessing families of their worldly possessions, and keeping alive a feudal system that ensured the nobility was always in control of everything but their vassals reproductive systems (the "Church" took care of that).  

    Even though I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Atheist, I still have a lot of respect for those who "walk the walk" with the progressive values taught in the Bible and apply it's lessons to benefit our fellow man, which is the very last thing that the right-wing Christo-Fascist Cargo Cultists seem to be interested in doing.

    A celibate clergy is an especially good idea, because it tends to suppress any hereditary propensity toward fanaticism. -Carl Sagan
