    First, thanks for the kind words. I appreciate them a lot. Second, I had
    in mind those who bash Christian fundamentalists (and Christians in
    general), implying in no uncertain terms that such "bible-thumpers" are
    dumb hicks, a step below Neanderthals with Nazi tendencies. I won't name
    names, but I'm sure you can detect those with an anti-religious bias by
    reviewing some recent posts as well as the archives on this site.
