Something is missing from the Gospels

A study by Baylor University should give Obama supporters pause as the polls give him the advantage.

"The more literally one reads the Bible, the less likely a white voter is willing to cast his or her ballot for a racial minority, according to a Baylor University survey of religious attitudes and practices."

Some people apparently either insert "Except clauses" or delete the verses about loving all people in what their Bibles say Jesus said.

There are some very interesting attitudes reflected in the study. Read it here.

An interesting survey which shows the stupidity of fundamentalists
