Good point Kevin. You cannot lump real Christians in with real Christians.
The problem is, pete reckons his delusion is because he is a Christian whilst on these pages, pick n mix Christians such as Joe Offer and Keith A of Hertford are quick to say Christian this and Christian that but don't recognise pete's stance.
I've said before that there is a huge difference between traditional and literal belief. One reason why I personally feel systemic superstition to be a hangover from another age and not given the credibility it demands is that many poor buggers can't tell the difference and get their minds fucked up.
I love the idea of old ladies doing the altar flowers each week, (if they did such things at, say, a local nursing home as well it would be a better contribution to society but hey ho) and I have been in the position of defending chaplaincy budgets in The NHS as the comfort they offer those who wish it aids recovery or makes the palliative journey more comfortable.
But the petes and ISIS types spoil it for normal people who don't mind a backdrop of faith to help them face the day.
We all have comfort blankets. Mine are Sheffield Wednesday and spoiling my grand daughter. Some of Mrs Musket's relations find theirs in Jesus. Many of our friends find it in Islam. Others I know find it in a pint glass.
It's a beautiful garden if you tend to it, but trust me, there are no fairies at the bottom of it.
