...The reason I believe to only prep with a Christian, if interested, is the moral background. No drugs, no alcohol abuse, non-homosexual, etc. ...

...Want me to fill several pages with examples of " Christian Stalwarts" , who couldn't get their noses off the mirror , who beat their wives , who had extramaritial affairs , who had dalliances with the same sex , who lied , cheated , embezzled....who stole from others on a mass scale........

That's half of the story, but you can always find bad people claiming to be good Christians/Muslims/Jews/etc.

What gets on my nerves is when good people are rejected by members of their own faith who act like their personal interpretation is the only legitimate one.

The LGBTQ issue is perhaps the most glaring.  Christianity is not "non-homosexual".  There are numerous Christian sects who welcome gays and are happy to perform gay marriages -- and who are rightly ticked off by governments violating their religious freedom by prohibiting gay marriages.

Ah well -- I could spend hours ranting about religious factionalism.

I'll just say that, of all my friends, the two people (besides my own wife) that I'd most trust to have near me during TEOTWAWKI happen to be a pagan lesbian married couple.

Only two requirements for me. Do they lie? Are they non-aggressive. Everything else is none of my business or immaterial. Very few people seem to share that outlook.

Agreed and very much agreed.

And “gun free” zones anywhere are a criminal’s dream come true – an invitation to indulge in whatever evil they have in mind, knowing there is likely nobody able to stop them.

I'm not sure its as much "gun free zones" that are the problem as much as "logic free humans" which are the problem, and that is a direct end result of the teachings of religionists, who teach us that we're not supposed to value lives, especially not our own.

And yes, like any other wishful thinking promises and nigerian scam, there is no shortage of people willing to fall for the "free lunch" promises of religionists.  Of course, in reality, the practitioners aren't nearly as clean and clear as they claim to be.
