"Most states have a rule on the books already. Where do you live?  In Florida, one only raises a hand, no Bible. In most cases, they do say "so help me god", but all yo ureply is "I do" so there's no real option to…"

"Another hammer in the theistic coffin for me personally.  Like many logical arguments, they appeal well to those who are actively questioning. The stalwart believers will ignore it just as hard as any others. However, it's nice to see…"

"Thank you, Matt!  I agree. All it takes is the willingness to stand back from your opinions and take an objective look at the situation. After five years of asking others, I daresay I've never found a satisfactory answer to "Why do…"

Stinging regret?  What about?  Not sure I'm following you on that part.

I know what you mean about the self-righteousness combined with paranoia, though.  All crazy fundamentalists know that everyone who's the slightest bit less conservative and observant than them (they've got it just right) is going to hell, because they're not real Christians.

But maybe those crazier guys over there who also ban their women from shaving their legs ... hmmmmmmmm.

Welcome.

Jeeze, ex-Pentecostal, huh?  How weird has that got to be, looking back at your life?  Being an ex-Catholic isn't nearly as exciting.  I always got the feeling that half of the priests didn't really believe, anyway.

And ... wow.  You could totally pull off an Amy Pond.  ^.^
