Funny that, here's me thinking *Christianity* was about Jesus and the New
Testament. Whatever happened to "He that is without sin among you, let him
cast the first stone." Oh I forgot, stoning isn't used anymore, it's
electrocution, lethal injection, gas chamber... so that's all right then...
not! No doubt you'll argue that because there's slavery in the Bible, we
should bring that back. No wonder I don't like organised religion all that
