172 special point of that about?

173 L: Whata ya mean?

192 T: [clears throat] Eh, well, I've got a I've got a plane
193 booked eh, to get to Boston Sunday, so I'm not going
194 to say what sorta conspiracy is because I want to go on
195 that plane in a, in good order as far as I'm concerned.
196 No, I think it is quite a benign conspiracy. It certainly a
197 very concerted deep plan and it involves eh it's much
198 wider than the people who are actually here. Seven
199 thousand people=

200 L: Huh?

213 T: Auh auh Well, Jesus Christ has got no other hands but
214 ours.

215 L: Oh.

216 T: It's only capable of doing what we do. I mean, as far as
217 (.)we'reconcerned.

219 T: Well, that depends who I'm talking to [laughs]=

220 L: Well, just tell me that=

221 T: If I'm talking to you? Well,ah I'm not sure what l
222 should say about that eh, itja ah ah I'm a Christian in
223 the sense that Jesus Christ wasn't eh crucified isn't
224 wasn't crucified between two candlesticks in a
225 cathedral, he was crucified in the town garbage heap
226 between two thieves, in that sense I'm a Christian.
