    "If a million penguins do a stupid thing, it's still a stupid thing. Just popular."

    That is very true. Conversely, if a million penguins do something very clever, it's both clever and popular.

    Brings us to the old adage of "eat manure, gazillions of flies cannot err";)

    What constitutes "Christian" behavior is determined by Jesus, and no one else. To be Christian is to follow Jesus, to be like Jesus. Democracy doesn't feature in it. Again, what about it is unchristian?

    Like those who voted in the 32 states where it was on the ballot each time and did not pass were unChristian :D

    and there lies the rub. Get a million penguins to do something popular and we still have to establish whether it's also clever or not.

    I predict a variety of opinions, undoubtedly all backed by pertinent substantiation. All the way to it being clever to fall on your back when a plane flies overhead.:D

    Democracy features, period.

    To follow your stance would be abrogating democracy and I'm sure that's not what you're saying.

    If anyone can give a sensible reason for that, sure. It's probably better than the Ostrich response of burying one's head in the sand. :D

    Meanwhile, where can I get these penguins? I've been trying to draw a decent penguin for a while now, but couldn't get a model. :hopeful:

    I'm saying that democracy has no place in determining what constitutes "christian" behavior. In governing a country it seems to be pretty much the best system we've found so far.

    But it says something when 32 states do not have enough votes to pass gay marriage ;)

    Well, for one thing, one has a heck of a hard time sighting that "ack-ack" while on one's belly.:D

    Last I heard, they're all flat out.;)
