    Dancing, I don't disagree with you at all. However, they aren't bad people BECAUSE they are Christians, they're just plain bad people. Their religion isn't going to make them good or bad. Sure, they'll pretend all day long that they are the most amazing and they'll flail others with how terrible they are, but that is a personality flaw, not a flaw in the religion in question. Like Delete said they are corrupt people. Sure they "represent" their religion, but it's in the same way Big Lick trainers(or any trainer like that) represent horse people. I've met several of those people in my lifetime and they were a huge part of the reason I have stayed away from churches.

    Delete - I agree with just about everything you said too, with one exception. "Without people there would be no "god" to worship." To me, God is not religion, He is not church, or the bible, or the worship. He's (and I don't even think that he is "male" per se, it's just easier for me to say it like that) so far beyond all of that stuff it's incomparable. In my opinion, religion is what humans use to try and make God comprehensible to their minds.

    You can probably imagine the fun conversations I've had with some of my very religious friends. Actually, for the most part they are very willing to discuss their religion and they aren't generally jerks about it, but they do have their bad days, just like me, where they get a little preachy and judgmental.

    I appreciate the discussion with you guys too. I am one of those really awful people that LOVES to talk about this stuff. Not in a preachy way, my faith is my own and I have no interest in converting anyone, heck if I did I'd probably have better luck just being a decent, understanding, and compassionate person, but in a "I find this really interesting" way.
