I AGREE with Julian R. Powell’s comments regarding Jesus and found them rather amusing. I wonder if Mr M. Stafford’s evangelical gatherings of “Christ-like” people include persecutors of children because they are deemed to be “born in sin”?

I ask because many fundamentalist Christian websites give advice about how best to inflict corporal punishment! (Hitting with a “paddle” is highly recommended!) Such “love” goes against the advice given by child psychologists and neuroscientists.

So scoff away, dear Julian, you have every right to do so. Any sane, civilised society does not need such “Christ-like” people!
