Yes, I'm a Christian. I'm starting this thread so that folks who are contributing to other threads can let out their pro-Jesus or anti-Jesus steam. It has proved difficult to have Jesus as a temporary segway: If you mention Jesus in a creationism vs. evolution thread everything thereafter in the thread is consumed with stuff about Jesus. And these usually-not-so-friendly conversations are usually held between a few people, with other folks who wanted to contribute to the original topic getting lost and left with no recourse.
I figure if you've got an out-of-control segway about this first century Palestinian Jew from Nazareth (yes, I'm still talking about Jesus), then you can just transfer it here, and we can have some measure of order in some of the more religiously-heated threads. By the by, I've been guilty of contributing to the out-of-control segway syndrome myself (forgiveness, por favor!).
I hope this is an acceptable topic, and I hope this helps.
