82. My Jesus can beat up your Jesus?
Edited on Thu Mar-30-06 03:12 AM by radfringe
or is it our own little version of a Secular war -- fighting it over here so we don't fight it over there?

so which version will come out on top? We have Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox Catholics, and Russian Catholics.(and other variations)

We have Conservative, Reformed and Orthodox Judism.(and other variations)

and in this corner The Protestants -- Adventist, Annabaptist-Mennonite, Anglican, Baptist, Calvinist, Church of God, Episcopal, Evangelical, ICOC, JfJ, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, Mormon, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Quacker, Research Centres, Varia. (and other variations)

Where do the Muslims, Hindus, and Buddists (and other variations) fit in?

Sorry - in my opinion - this is a war created by a small fragment of the religious community who think they own the only "CORRECT" version of religion and are trying to shove down the throats of the rest of us... it's no war - it's a hissy-fit

p.s. I want a bumper sticker that says WWJH? (Who Would Jesus Hate?)
