This was not exactly the kind of topic I expected here but it says something good about you all that you could raise this and chat about it without anyone getting all stoopid and pushy. I get so tired of people shoving their religion.......ya know.
I'm what you might call a mellowed out Jesus freak.
I take Jesus serious, serious on love, truth, grace, freedom, mutual respect, not serious on the "I'm right/you're wrong" thing. Plenty of ctns, in small groups, are great company but stick 'em in a building on sunday and it's zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz time.
I'm hoping, in the next fifty years or so, to get the chance of kicking back with some believers from the other main religions, chew the fat, get the inside gig on what it's like for them without anyone trying to convert anyone or score points or any of that crap.
So the guy who invented Harley's dies and goes to heaven. St Peter lets him in the gate after frowning at his tats and the guy heads up to chat with the Big Dude. (Dudess, take your pick.) He says to God, you didn't do to bad with that whole woman design project but you got a few things wrong....
1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusion.
2. It chatters constantly at high speeds.
3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much.
4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust.
5. And the maintenance costs are outrageous."
God looks thoughtful for a second, wanders over to some kind of desk, waves his hand, comes back with a slip of cloud with some words written on it. Reads the cloud, looks at the Harley guy and says with a little smile, "Well mate my design might have some flaws but according to the latest statistics more people are riding my design than yours."
