After four trips to Rome
Because the theology and philosophy of Christianity seems reasonably intelligible and straightforward I'm aware that many Christians are just sort of fake Christians. But few of them are so virulently so and audaciously so as right wing Christians, as Republican Christians. I am just sensible enough not to try to reason these people out of their dark cult, but as yet I am not quite wise and resolute enough to not be drawn into imaginary arguments with these people.
At some point in the imagined arguments my opponent will invariably challenge me. "But have you even read The New Testament?"
To which I always reply "No. But I've seen the paintings."
