For the less subtle among us, the preferred sarcasm is, "This are fundie, xstain talibangelical morals."

Not all Christians so abuse the golden rule as do the xstain "fundies concerned with your undies."

talibangelical. I like that. I've added it to my dictionary.

I think that's a bit unfair. If you've been brought up to believe nonsense as truth by devoutly fanatical parents then I don't think you can blame that person for being stupid or lacking a mind of their own.

Luckily it's something I've never had to experience but I'm not sure how I would have turned out if things had been different.

We all think we're so clever and civilised. But let us not forget that under extreme circumstances otherwise sane, law abiding people can be capable of this most hideous atrocities and gullible stupidity.

The various twentieth century wars are full of examples.

Unless that person is in total isolation from exposure to other ideas and people, yes, you can.

this is why public school is so important - to expose kids to people who are different and see them as good and okay (or the ability to determine that if they aren't).

books, tv, movies all expose people to different world views

children are not clones of the parents

unless they are isolated from outside influences

one of the most horrifying things I have seen is that Documentary Jesus Camp - in particular, the scene where the mom is homeschooling the kid and they are making fun of evolution by totally misrepresenting it

and the little girl who constantly testifies at strangers and calls the elderly black man a terrorist after he confirmed for her that jesus was his saviour

Disagree, if you're an honest person, you know that there is no evidence of god, and you have been taught to lie about it. Sooner or later, if you have any morals, you'll become atheist, because as you get older, it gets harder and harder to lie about god being real.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
