Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

I'm not doing this for the devout, I'm not doing this for the impenetrable, I'm doing this for the fence-sitters. Having once been a Catholic, I was nudged towards atheism by looking at these sorts of things...granted, I experienced it first hand by reading the Bible and seeing the inconsistencies.
There are people who are in the middle, up in the air, on the fence, in play, whatever turn of phrase you choose. This is for them.
