I have many friends that are Baha'is. Many beliefs of the Baha'i Faith strongly appeal to me because they are so inclusive, including the concept of progressive revelation which is basically the idea that all religions are chapters of the same religion. I embrace the Baha'i beliefs in the equality of the sexes, the absence of paid clergy, concept there is no conflict between science and religion, etc but philosophically I land probably somewhere between Quakers and Unitarians. However, I have not yet seriously investigated any religion without running into a deal breaker for me which is in addition to the fact that I cannot even say "follow" much less do it.
There is a Bible verse that perfectly describes you, Mrs. Martin:
"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" -- Romans 1:22

I would be surprised if you have any friends at all.

Yep, friends of many faiths, Jewish, Catholic, Methodist, even Baptist. All are kind, loving, and bright. None feel compelled to quote scripture in order to lecture or demean other people. I love that about them.

It never fails to astound me how blind some of these folks are to their own hypocritcal menace. Jesus out of one side of their mouths, hatred out of the other.

Has anyone read about the Viking's version of Adam and Eve?

They don't want dialogue. They want to be right and they want to be superior.

A drunk in a bar pukes all over his own shirt, which was brand new before he came in.“Damn,” he says.“I puked on my shirt again. If the wife finds out, she’s gonna kill me.”

“Not to worry,” says the bartender as he sticks a $20 bill in the drunk’s pocket.“Just tell her someone puked on you and gave you some cash to cover the cleaning bill.”

So the drunk goes home and tells his wife about the guy who puked on him. She reaches into his pocket and finds two twenties.“Why are there two twenties?” she asks.

The drunk replies,“Oh, yeah, he crapped in my pants, too.”
