I love it when Christians quote bible passages to heathens, as if quoting the bible is going to make any diffierence.

It just shows that the bible thumpers are utterly ignorant.

I am always amazed that otherwise intelligent people will
argue their views on politics and religion. Why does it matter
that someone believes differently than you ? Are you winning ?
Have you changed their mind yet ?

Didn't think so .

Agreed there is value , but only if you see it.

There is value in learning other viewpoints.

It sure matters if people are using superstitious beliefs to determine government policy!

As for changing people's mind...you are right in that most just keep on truckin' with what was instilled in them at an early age. Whatever nonsense that may be.
I was raised a Catholic and it was drilled into me that if I prayed hard enough God would help.
Taking a hard look at the world I came to realize that God doesn't give a sh#t. And according to the bible, He is murderous and vain. Evil is not too strong a word.

So what has 2000 years of Christianity achieved? Are Christians better off than athiests, or people with other faiths?
Not one bit!

Saw a bunch of those traveling through Oregon. I considered adding: "El esta en el desierto." "Si se pueda." "Organizese", etc. (i am not a graffiti artist. i'd worry about the potential pushback.)




























































































Locker edit: "praying" for gud outcomes. Anyone up for climbing a rock and soaking in the view?

Don't let go? Or don't touch it in the first place?
