    Good point, Bob. I agree. That is why I don't think the literalist issue
    is, ultimately, of great significance.
    But if one insists that "literal" is the only option, I think he has a
    real chance of turning some young person who thinks he thinks away from
    the faith. It's like the YEC thing -- just another arena.
