To a certain extent? I'm guessing that that is to the same extent that they agree with your interpretation of common scripture.
I'm not interested in areas of non-overlap. That's a red herring. I was clear that I am talking about material that you agree is the word of God/G_D.
This won't be easy, either. I feel like I need an old Negro spiritual work-song to help me with my burden here : "Tote that barge, lift that bail."
What you NEED is self-respect and INTELLIGENCE.
