Nice item Pam. I join your perspective. Matters pertaining to any subject which is beyond reasonable explaination or scientific validation is up for grabs, open to one's own value-sets to understand or not; to accept or deny. For others to judge, and attempt to dissuade or persuade is a mark of their own insecurities seeking securities in numbers, or otherwise are bounded zealots reaching for truths through pure spirituality which does not exist in the realm of humanity...hence their insecurities. They float psychologically, in these matters, missing the value of 'faith' in its broadest forms, definition and context from which average people can draw their own value of personally styalized faith and beliefs through time, taking many years in most cases, associated with personal strengths, securities and maturity levels. They often speak in the 'collective', 'assumptive' language from which they draw security...hence they appear to be joiners, or recruiters in their use of language. Ironically, they are insecure in their own 'truths' and speak frequently in the collective, rahter than the personal. An interesting topic, Pam. Nice column.

Good column, Pam. Have you noticed, as I think I did, a comment in Ed Smith's current column which might be relevant to yours? Suggesting two similarities between some Catholics and most Muslims?

Well-said, Ms. Frampton. For the record, some of the finest people I know seldonm if ever "Darken a Church door." Speaking as a professing Christian, anyone who would choose to pass judgement on another, should read the Biblical account of jesus reaction to the howling mob who demanded the life of the woman caught committing adultry.
