I was told last night this is the unifying event... WTF?
I feel the same frustration I did trying to point out logical leaps of bibilical teachings to my grandma amidst her adamant insistence that I believe and buy it all as truth, the only truth, despite gaps this five-year old could ride her pony through.... I was convinced then of only one thing: religion is a form of insanity.
It took me 50 years to say it out loud, but hey, it's still true: religion is a manifestation of mental illness. Teaching religion to children is child abuse.
Religionists will insist now that I'm going to hell. And that's different somehow from being pretzel-twisted by faith and dogma?
