      On "don't attack people's spouses" day, it's worth noting that it's also a good idea not to attack people's religion.  But I know that you probably just really wanted to write the phrase "Diet of Worms," for which it's hard to blame you.

          The statement was not about the Catholic League, which I don't mind at all people slamming, but about the Catholic Church having been "dying" for centuries.

          Let me know if you need more of an explanation than that.

            "it's also a good idea not to attack people's religion" which really isn't as narrow as you make it seem.  To people like the Catholic league, my very existence as an atheist seems to be an attack on their religion.

            •  And yet atheism isn't an attack on their religion (0+ / 0-)

              It's also lousy politics to attack, rather than disagree with, someone's religion.  It may be good for your parochial (ha ha) cause, but it boosts the wrong people.
