Yes.

This is one of the Basic Precepts of All Religions.

ESPECIALLY Fundamental Christianity.

This is because the later re-inventors of Christianity were really only concerned with Control.

Modern Fundamentalist Christianity is so far removed from the example as set forth by Jesus, that it may as well change it's name to something else.

Perhaps B&W (for everything is Black & White)

Perhaps Either-Or-ism (hard to spell, though)

Perhaps Leave Reason At The Door, or LRATD (pronounced La-RAT-ed) for short.(my personal favorite: but I suppose it's too honest for Them)

Maybe Don't Confuse Me with Facts: My Mind Is Made Up For Me. DCMFMMIMUFM, but that is too hard to say (if all too true)

Perhaps we could turn to that classic by George Orwell, 1984. They could call themselves The Ministry Of Truth or MiniTruth for short.

Now THAT fits to a "T"

I want to start the Church of one.(No not like the army of one) One church one member... me. It will be the Church of evolutionary mothernaturism. With a God to be determined later and an afterlife where you live forever through your children and your good works.

I need a tax break, think this will fly??
