    Tell me, if an informal poll were conducted on this site of the ranging of loathing towards scherzo, with several options, would 97% vote for "kill him"?

    As an aside, there are many of us in the "states" who don't like having this christian crap shoved in our face all the time either. I am a religious person and quite frankly because of that I have no use for christianity (or any of it's immature brothers) but I'm sitting here right now in the "bible belt" surrounded neighbors who are appalled that I'm even a Democrat. Thankfully they don't know I'm not a christian or I might have buy more bullets to keep them off my lawn. Get over it. I just try to get people to do the right things (care about our children's future) no matter what particular secret handshake, magic underwear, or cherished fantasy they embrace. Offer an open hand but don't expect that an unclenched fist means they automatically share your delusions just hope it means they aren't hiding a gun in their other hand. In this case the ad seems "mostly harmless."

    tell me this, in Europe, in the U.K anyway, less than 2% of the population go to church, beleif in God has a stigma attached to it, but in the States it seems that persons are much more open and candid with regard to their faith, this to me, is a beautiful aspect of American culture, and the Americans that i have met have kind of embodied this honesty, why do you guys think that this is the case? it has been in my mind for ages? is it because of your traditions, the vastness of the country, community peer pressure, why is it the case?

    mm, its a good question? materialism, lack of integrity of religious leaders, other forms of religion, football (soccer to you), faith in science and its theories, prevalence of tabloid newspapers and sensationalistic journalism (God! why me! etc etc), adoption of other ideologies, socialism , etc etc
