Who's Your Daddy?

This week in Newsweek, a brief article about the documentary "The God Who Wasn't There." From it's promotional website. Quote!
"Holding modern Christianity up to a merciless spotlight, this bold and hilarious new film asks the questions few dare to ask. And when it finds out how crazy the answers are, it dares to call them crazy.

Your guide through the bizarre world of Christendom is former fundamentalist Brian Flemming, who unflinchingly explores the absurdity of belief and believers."

Yawn. When a disciplined son gets mad at his father sometimes he says: "You're not my daddy." This film -- a "merciless spotlight" held up by a "former fundamentalist" -- sounds suspiciously like that.

Actually, I find myself agreeing with this cat on one thing. Again from the website. Quote!
"The beliefs of moderate Christians make even less sense than those of extremists."
This "extremist" says amen to that!
