Works with video also ... example is the Orthodox Prelates doing a Liturgy that I posted the other day.

It was The Gospel From Outer Space, by Kilgore Trout. It was about a visitor from outer space... [who] made a serious study of Christianity http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Christianity, to learn, if he could, why Christians found it so easy to be cruel. He concluded that at least part of the trouble was slipshod storytelling in the New Testament. He supposed that the intent of the Gospels was to teach people, among other things, to be merciful http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Mercy, even to the lowest of the low. But the Gospels actually taught this: Before you kill somebody, make absolutely sure he isn't well connected. So it goes. The flaw in the Christ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ stories, said the visitor from outer space, was that Christ, who didn't look like much, was actually the Son of the Most Powerful Being in the Universe http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Universe. Readers understood that, so, when they came to the crucifixion, they naturally thought...: Oh, boy — they sure picked the wrong guy to lynch that time! And that thought had a brother: "There are right people to lynch." Who? People not well connected. So it goes. The visitor from outer space made a gift to Earth of a new Gospel. In it, Jesus http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Jesus really was a nobody, and a pain in the neck to a lot of people with better connections than he had. He still got to say all the lovely and puzzling things he said in the other Gospels. So the people amused themselves one day by nailing him to a cross and planting the cross in the ground. There couldn't possibly be any repercussions, the lynchers thought. The reader would have to think that too, since the Gospel hammered home again and again what a nobody Jesus http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Jesus was. And then, just before the nobody died, the heavens opened up, and there was thunder http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Thunder and lightning http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Lightning. The voice of God came crashing down. He told the people that he was adopting the bum as his son, giving him the full powers and privileges of the Son of the Creator of the Universe throughout all eternity http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Eternity. God said this: From this moment on, He will punish anybody who torments a bum who has no connections! ---In email@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org, <turquoiseb@...> mailto:turquoiseb@... wrote: --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, wrote: > > Fundies don't believe they have a "right" but rather an obligation > to save us from ourselves.

And yes, I meant to use that word, not "evangelicals." I would feel the same way about them if they were evangelizing Islam, or Judaism, or Hinduism, or Buddhism, or atheism. I think it's *just swell* that people believe what they believe. If these beliefs makes them happy, cool. If, as with some religions, these beliefs make them miserable, that's cool, too IMO. Let them be as happy or as miserable as they want with their belief system. But the moment they try to make it *my* belief system, they have crossed a line. And IMO that line is structured not in consciousness but in ego. As you put it, they want others to become "just like them." The HUBRIS of that. The EGO of that.
