I dunno, call me crazy, but sometimes, unless the aim is to alienate people who otherwise would be friends, or to emulate raghead-style intolerance and thereby draw attention to one's own arrogance, it's best not to hold forth personal opinions that trash others or others' deeply held beliefs. Some of the zealous views I've read in this thread border on wierd and are without qualification, tawdry, contemptible and offensive. But then, those would be MY personal opinions.
