    Re: The most dangerous religion on earth ?

    I'm reading a dated book from the 1960s "Honest to God" written by Bishop John A T Robinsonm. It sure stirred up a lot of sh*t at that time and is the precurser to what many 21st century theologians are now saying. He fits in with Crossan, Spong, Borg, cox etc. There is only one problem with these writers, they make people think and the fundamentalists do not like it. It's like God help the thinkers.

    I regard Honest to God as a breakthrough book and it should be on every church's bookshelf. It was shocking at the time because the author was a Bishop, they were the last group in the Church of England who were expected to lie in public to uphold Cranmer's historical position.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    In regards to Anarchy . Anarchy still has a structure, it's not what a government tells you it is. The word anarchy is usually said in a derogatorive way, meaning some kind of chaos but it has structure similar to communalistic rule.

    Globalisation is the worst kind of government structure and rule, and IT WILL be oppressive. In fact it already is. Unfortunetly a lot of people believe the answer to it is right wing politics giving the impression of communalistic rule (you know, making one country "great again" ), but in fact is the is the opposite to anarchy.

    The irony is who sets up the IT structure & the communication satelites that this sort of Anarchy propaganda is spread on - oh, yes - Governments.

    Spot I agree with you on "Honest to God". It came in print when I was at university and dI never had a chance to read it but now I have a used copy from amazon and it is just great. Let's not forget another Bishop who upsets peokple, John Shelby Spong. I love it.

    Jesus himself drank wine and probably beer as well. The Greek is very specific about the difference between fruit juice and wine and Jesus drank firmented wine.
