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. Carol Rainey Listen to 'Strange Days...
