10. That's pretty funny about the lack of Biblical literacy among Evangelical followers...

...because I'm used to hearing their abuse directed at Catholics for the exact same thing (and there is historical precedent for that before the days of the printing press). The Evangelicals are always going after the Catholics for that. But I can't say I'm surprised about their own illiteracy and the personality cult nature of their followers; we've sure seen plenty of it.

There is a whole cottage industry (actually, it's more like big business these days) in "apologetics", where the deluded followers of various denominations argue incessantly with each other over whose version of the truth actually is the TRVTH, forever and ever amen. They have books, CDs, TV shows, etc. devoted to this. And not just Protestants; the execrable EWTN network must devote at least 50% of their time attempting to convert Evangelicals to their brand of reactionary Catholicism.

Ironically, some of the most reactionary "radtrad" Catholics absolutely hate EWTN because so many of the "stars" on that network are converts from Protestantism, and are therefore apostates.
