Obviously most don't. I had thought this thread had died and that I was a
fool to have even brought it up because of the lack of thoughtful response
it had gotten (except for Brodie's, which sent my to the floor in tears).
But you've renewed my faith that there are some people not afraid to think
about the scary stuff.

What do the Christians think? Was Jesus a fool to die for convictions?
