My parents taught me an awful lot about religion. Theirs, mostly, because they were convinced it was the only "true" religion, like every other one of the 30,000+ christian sects out there.

Are you telling me The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch is not real?

Hmmmm I think I need to reevaluate my views on religion.

(Is anybody truly an expert Ohio?)

Be careful. The mods here think that Monty Python's Holy Grail is "mocking" and they'll delete it, even from the A&A forum.

F'real? We can't have a sense of humor about religion or non-religion? Guess this means I shouldn't sing The Inquisition. Hmmph.

Monty Python and George Carlin - doesn't get any better than that!!! Have you read Lamb - the Gospel According to Biff (Christ's childhood best friend)? I'm reading that now. Very informative!

It is certainly the case that reasoned argument just bounces off. Raucous mockery has much more chance of getting through.
