If you could remove your self-respect and personal integrity?

You could publish a book that would be an instant best-seller.

All you'd need to do, is write something that feeds into the bigotry of the biggest religious group.

And viola! Instant best-seller.:D

Hmm, dishonesty as a a way to strike it rich? Well now if I had a magic spell, a "take away the dishonesty" chant, then ... Oh hell no, no way, that would make me one of them.
I guess (like always)someone else* will have to do all the fleecing of the sheep.

Now, that is the way to mis-translate a post.

And as I posted earlier about myself, if you want to jab me, you will need a much sharper stick, that holds true for BoQF, too. A really, really sharp stick might give you a tiny chance at becoming a thorn in any of our sides. Keep trying though, you are the perfect fodder for our goals.

Unfortunately, that appears to be the case: dishonesty sells pretty well---much better than truth, for example.

Compare fiction against nonfiction in book sales, just as one media example.:)

Of course-- if you can package fiction as "fact"? That sells best of all....

... fox news?
