    You know full well that many see the Bible as metaphors written by men. Someone can believe in the teaching of Jesus without believing in the book.
    Not all Christians are fundamentalist .

    No. What makes you say that? Do you even have a rudimentary understanding of the Bible?

    Believing what the Bible says doesn't make one a "fundamentalist". The Bible itself says it was inspired by God. Look, if you don't want to believe, that's your business, but simply believing in the teachings of Jesus, who you would consider to be a fictional character, doesn't make one a "Christian".

    We disagree in a place where , for now, that is still allowed.

    That's exactly right. And even though we disagree, we are ultimately on the same side. Be careful with that avatar, you could get flagged as a "domestic terrorist".

    Well, I don't. Those "Christians" are just as bad as the Pharisees were. Their being ministers or rabbi's or nuns doesn't make abortion moral. It makes them immoral.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our nation
    Pick your enemies carefully.
