Let me see if I get this right.<quoted text>
Now I know that you're just funnin' me.
Can you suggest an alternative approach that doesn't include compromise with a church that never did that for us? We want the church out of our lives completely. If it won't give us that, we'll have to take it, or accept their terms. We don't need to, we don't want to, and the church deserves no consideration. Do you think that we don't have the right to take that attitude, or do you merely regret it?
It's up to the church to pick one: back off or be pushed off. I think that we both know how that will play out.
And it won't affect you in Australia, where I believe that your church has already been house trained. And even if you were American, it still wouldn't affect you. American Christians, like Australian Christians, will always be free to read their bibles and pray. What else do you want?
You are now lecturing me for agreeing with you 100%?
Religions affect the whole damn world Teddy, I'm pretty sure you know this. We are also America's allies so if something big goes down over there, it does affect us.
Seems to me, you were devoted and then found out you were lied to, this angered and hurt you.
I hope that you don't think you are the only person this has happened to.
I want religion annihilated, completely, by any means necessary.
