Yes, and what about turning the other cheek, judging not that ye be judged, letting him without sin cast the first stone, driving the moneychangers out of the temple, etc. Doug

All good stuff in its way, but I'm not sure that meeting the enemy on his home ground is the best strategy. Any Biblical quote mustered in a good cause can be rebutted by some other quote. It's the continuum from positive doctrine to positive policy that's key.
