If there are bad people of every religion, how do we know who is who? Maybe your leaders are the bad ones? The standard "they aren't real Christians" is never a good argument because you would actually have to have evidence of the nature of your god. Because every Christian, born-again, Catholic, Nazi's, Satanists,...even Lutherans, has equal footing. All Christian cults claim to have the true interpretation.

If there are bad people, such as 90% of Christians in America that salivate over killing little brown children because their parents believe in a different magic sky daddy, then it is up to the 10% to change the rest. It is the American Christians that are blood-thirsty. The US is the most religious nation on the entire Earth, and overwhelmingly Christian (I know....I know....everyone but your cult is not a "true Christian")

As far as the Bible, I can almost guarantee I know the Bible better than you and most ministers. I've cross-referenced the Dead Sea Scrolls, read the Torah and many parts of the Koran. I'm no slouch in that area.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
