The distinction between attacking faith and
attacking religion I don't see. I mean, *I*
don't equate them, but I surely thought you
did. And it's certain that any Christian
would take your attacks on faith personally.
And just a couple of days back you were
complaining about that fundie minister
who said you would go to hell for taking the
name "lucifer" in vain. (!?!)

Umm, I thought you were with Dawkins on this
