Premium Member Red and Green Christians
Let's start with a fundamental flaw of fundamentalist Christianity,
a literary flaw within literal non-interpretation of historical creation

This is true of radical jihadist Moslims as well,
although we both know you think you're more special...

Premium Member Love Lesson Planning
First, imagine, if you can,
"Love" is not just a many splendored thing,
although it is that,
but behaviorists and existentialists behavioralize
the complex of emotions and consciousness
wearing that synergetic label
as active, sometimes spontaneous
"cooperation,"

Imagine you grew...

Premium Member War is a War Crime
Once wars were fought with sticks and stones
to flog the flesh and batter bones
