religious debate

Got into a debate at work about Jesus - now how did I let that happen?

I was saying how much I hate the hackneyed "If only we _really_ did what Jesus intended" argument.

I think if we all followed Jesus´ example we would all be paranoid, delusional and Oprah. (Note the first two adjectives might have been redundant.)

Anyway I voiced my opinion that the whole "do as you would be done by" thing kind of misses the point, worse still it keeps getting misapplied with disastrous consequences. (For example, the dreadful Amelie.)

Anyway one of my colleagues kept saying to me "but love is important" (he is not religious btw).

My comeback is to quote the great prophet Tina T: "Whats love got to do with it?"
