    Yeah. I know. We are singing from the same page of the hymnbook here,
    Glenn. It is sad. Still -- based on what I see, they are winning the
    hearts and minds(?) of the multitudes. And I see no way that tide is
    going to be turned, at least not in my lifetime.

    But, as Edmund Burke observed, "Just because only a little can be done,
    it does not excuse one from doing what he can." (paraphrased), we must
    keep on keeping on in the gallant battle. Fundamentalism is only 90 years
    old, it has a good way to go before it dies. That it will die, I have
    little doubt. And, as Allen well knows, both you and I, along with many
    here, are committed to killing it just a little bit sooner by our
    arguments and testimonies.
