    The big deal in this case is the anguished screams of the displaced Christian displayers bewailing their loss of entitlement.

    Anguished screams?

    Why do Leftists always fall back on hyperbole? Can't you deal with facts?

    Probably because they spend so much time listening to Rush Limbaugh.

    You are absolutely correct. I should have said pathetic whines.

    There is a wonderful quote from William Cobbett's Peter Porcupine pamphlets where he describes one writer's hyperbole as what the rhetoricians call overblown hyperbole, but what others would be tempted to call a damned lie. I have a feeling what he would have thought of Manc's recent comments.

    The Druids are dead.

    That's OK. Let's not discriminate against the non living Americans.

    If we rule out vague hints of Irishmen (though I think they were mostly monks and not Druids) reaching the New World in the first millennium, then none of them were Americans.

    No, what you really should do is provide links to any future claims you might make in order to demonstrate that they are based on fact and not your whimsical fantasies.

    Calling it 'hyperbole' is being kind as we all know it was a "damned lie". He knows it, we know it, and yet these damned lies continue.

    Perhaps we expect pride to kick in, that creating lies to advance a personal opinion would be an affront to our own dignity as human beings, but that never seems to happen with some people.

    I can often be as wrong as the next guy but certainly don't deliberately "hyperbole".
