More than half of those 85% say they are christian because they want people to see them as good people but than they say how they dont want to hear the preaching from the holy rollers and bible thumpers, calling them jesus freaks. They drink, go to bars, have sex with out being married, look at a little porn and play WOW and COD.<quoted text>
No dice. Christians are about 85% of the country. That persecution nonsense carries no weight with me. You are in control of this country. To put that to the test, imagine two candidates for the Presidency. One is openly atheist and the other is openly Christian. All other things being equal, which candidate do you think will get the nod?
That's a rhetorical question. We all know the answer.
Anyway, facts are facts. You believe in a magic man who sent his son to die so he could pay a debt we owed his father (who is also him). Now we can all live forever. And there was a talking snake too.
I'm sorry that it sounds silly when you say it out loud. But that's the way it is. I can't help what the Bible says. If it quacks like a duck...
The number of people who go to church with a religious fever and talk about jaysas are very few
