relevant. nevertheless i don't believe george washington, john adams, james madison and almost every great thinker in history believed in a cartoon. that dismissal ismo very common today. people have a dismissive attitude to those of us who actually believe in the god of the bible and you are free to have that belief. it is not cartoonish. it is indispensable that there is a god who demand that we be good people who we will have to answer. the best idea ever developed for the creation of decent people. i would like everyone walking here to feel their behavior toward other humant beings is just by god. i don't know why that is objectionable. i don't. .. i can't think of a better idea. to think that i want through life having to be a good person and that god expects me to be good, why does that make people like the last caller angry so much so that he calls what we believe in a cartoon? it's a puzzle to me, frankly. i deal with them on the radio show, i deal with it in e-mail. i can only say that this is what -- it has presented a cartoonish caricature of what we believe in. and then s
