    No.


    Is this about your resentments about Ben Stein, far, far more intelligent than you, or about the true meaning of Christmas?

    I don't really want to even see any more personal attacks on famous people by left wing, uninformed radicals. You guys are boring

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
