    Thank you for sharing that article about Fred Phelps's son. He didn't have to become an ahteist. He could have remained a Christian minus the extremism of his father.

    Thanks Salty.

    Such a sad story. I certainly understand why he felt the need to flee. It is heartbreaking that he could not find the loving God of the Bible to replace the tyrant he understands all too well. I do think this helps to show how important a role parents play - especially fathers - in developing faith.

    >He didn't have to become an ahteist.

    Interesting observation. Don't externals modify one's personality? I could have remained a dispensationalist but then would I be the same person or a different person?

    Why must you be such a contrarian?

    If I stated, "It is impossible for you to hold your breath for 30 minutes," where should I send the flowers?
