I would prefer if you answered my "challange" (whatever) first. But since I don't think you are planning on answering it anyway I will move on...

I challenge you to show me a religion that is designed to accept, and even PROMOTES constant change.
Take The Episcopal Church? They have recently changed their stance on (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) people in their clergy. Many Protestant churches have also changed their stance on birth control (not abortion) The catholic church (as stated above) has changed their view to evolution.
What kind of change are you looking for? I don't think any church would ever change its view on some issues (murder theft ect.) And BTW, all these the changes are rather recent, within the last 30-40 years.
::EDIT:: This topic is fun, it needs its own thread
