My fave is

professionals built the Titanic.
but I like 27 as well.

I agree with the whole not being a Christian thing just because you go to church every Sunday. But I don't agree that being a Christian, real or not, has anything to do with your lifestyle.
Christianity, much like Buddhism and Muslim and all that, is just religion. Pure and simple. It is not something that needs to be seen judging on one's lifestyle or behavior. It is just an aspect of your believe and state of mind. So going to a church every Sunday does not make you a Christian, but does not going to Church at all make you an atheist or a man without Christian belief? I don't think so.
Being an Athiest myself, I feel compelled to comment on DA's statement "I believe that if someone is a true Christian, then they wouldn't have to proclaim it. People would be able to just look at them/observe them for a few moments and just know it."
This statement sums up what most people assume about "non-believers" It implies that you can only do acts of kindness or be moral if you are associated with some sort of religion or Deity. I am a moral person but my morality doesn't come from believing in a deity, it comes from a simple philosophy, treat people with love, and kindness and in return you will recieve love and kindness.
btw...I LOVE # 10 I DO need the trip!
