On religion.

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” - Mahatma Gandhi

I've said before: that as I get older my politics becomes increasingly conservative while my Christianity becomes increasingly liberal. There's an awful lot of "love" stuff in the Bible, let's focus on that.

I grew up in an extremely conservative evangelical private Christan School. I took many things from that experience, both good and bad.

The good: I studied the Bible inside and out, front to back, and many books of the Bible several times over. Enough times that I think I actually ended up "getting" it. I learned to stand up for what I believe in and to actually believe in something.

The bad: Gandhi hit the nail on the head.
