No problem, George. Guess it's just the slippery nature of email -- sometimes you can't tell the "expression on people's faces." Sorry for misunderstanding. I had thought 'Christians' was meant to be scare quotes -- you know, an additional insult. Well, just imagine that your comments were deadly serious -- they'd be pretty similar to Hitler, for instance. Thanks for the clarification -- no hard feelings.

I was being facetious. And note the quotes around 'Christians'; I know that there are
true, honest, non-hypocritical Christians (although I still think they're misguided and,
well, wrong). It's just all of the rest of them that get my goat.
I don't really understand why you link my comments to antisemitism or fascism.
Although you're welcome to call me a misanthrope...
