Here's a honey who commented today on my old post "Ken Ham's Museum Opens to Closed Minds."

Kristine, I am a Christian, you do not need to fear me. You are showing the most radical display of intolerance that I have ever seen. You talk about Christians like they are the worst thing on this planet. That proves that you know nothing of our lifestyles and convictions. I hope that you can know the peace that we enjoy. How you can call Mr. Ham and any of his associates closed minded is ridiculous. You and others [oh here it comes!] do not understand we were once like you, but our open-minded approach to a God who desires an intimate relationship with us, his creation. To reach a relationship with God is about as far from humans desires as one can get and it would take the most open mind imaginable. I have been a Christian for about twenty-six years and have attended many churches across this land and in Europe; I have never encountered a Christian with a hate and intolerance towards your beliefs as you have for ours. Yes, I admit there are those who go way too far that do and say things considered by more normal thinking individuals as very radical, hateful, fearful, judgmental, and just not wanting to understand anything except what they believe. Please understand that you are one of those people that are afraid, mean, confused. Yes you may have a joyful spirit when you are out having a good time with friends. I believe that that is not your real face. I have seen your real face and it is not nice. I do not know everything about you. I can only respond to the Kristine I have met in your words here. I only ask you to open your mind to God, he will open his heart to you. His heart is more comforting, tolerant, and loving than any you have ever encountered.
So I provided a link to this kid's smug video. Also to a comment I made yesterday at Pharyngula, should Rene be open-minded enough to read it.
I'm dissing pseudoscience, not Christianity. Conflating the two is their mistake, not mine.
Rev. Barky quipped, "She's never encountered a Christian who talks like you in all the churches she's attended? Sha!"
Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
