48. Excellent compilation of verses!

If they could think for themselves, independently of peers, it would work. But most of them live and breathe cult-thinking.

Many years ago I tried to convert my racist, fundamentalist mother into being a more compassionate, less judgemental person using buybull verses. She wouldn't listen to her atheist daughter. She has to hear this from the pulpit and from her churchie peers, i.e. her cult. And there's not a snowball's chance of that happening.

Back during Shrub's reign, I embarked on a letter writing campaign to church preachers in the South hoping I could get thru to them, using buybull verses and all the tact I could muster. Heard back from only one church: "Don't bother us any more." They are just closed assholes.

I am not saying folks shouldn't try - we must! There are likely to be folks who can be reached.
So... for a great post, Calimary!
