Actually, Mr. Bourdais, I didn't get a whiff of "contempt" from
the level, factual tone of Mr. McGonagle's re- sponse to you.

It is you who show contempt for anyone else's right to
have an opinion that differs from yours. Yet your opinion
is no more provable than his. This is a faith-based belief
you adhere to, one that seems to demand disrespect for other
people's choices--their often thoughtful, sometimes
extremely painful and difficult choices they may have
made about which events meet their own personal
standards for believability.

On this List, you seem to prefer to set up straw men and bait
people into a response just so that you can say: Aha! You _are_
an infidel! I was right!

There is a whiff of something here, though - a whiff of the
school bully. Come on. That's hardly interesting in an adult
setting.
