    Christian-United Brethren in Christ. Really into what is considered the "social Gospel" I.E. tony Campolo regarding living lives of service to those less fortunate. I find myself at odds with the American Church as it is filled with idealogues who have lost the plot(Falwell, Robertson, etc.) and have made christians look like the pharisees.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Fantasy is more powerful than reality? Sorry, but I don't buy it. True that imagination is the first step towards progress, but it useless unless it is put into practical use. A philosophy like this sells books and gets you on Oprah (well, on her show . . .), but won't get you far in life.
