Ron, I've had similar thoughts about this sort of thing.
I've >enjoyed< watching all the saloon bantering because you all were having so much fun [and I certainly like fun more than most people I know!].
I didn't read all the posts because it didn't really "turn my crank," but that's ok. It was fun to see you guys have fun.
After some thought, I think the bottom line is (and I know I'm preaching to the choir on this): Christianity is violently offensive to a lot of people (including my boss, my Dad, most of California, and also the crowd of people who hung Jesus on the cross).
What'd Jesus say..."a servant is no greater than his master. If they hated Me, they will also hate you." (This was on my mind because it was called out in "The Passion" movie. By the way, Ron, if you haven't seen it, check it out.)
Unless you're "on the inside," it really don't make a lot of sense. Before I "came to Christ," I remember thinking about a Christian girl, "what a waste of a life."
So, what're our options? I see it as just keep on trying to do what the Good Book says.
Dave--[who hopes he's not reported to the moderator...because...after all, he thought he was rational, it's still Sunday, and he didn't call anyone names.]
