    I thought that kind of silliness was long gone. But that's probably
    because I have not encountered it myself -- even in the Southern Baptist
    church where I was a member in the 70s.

    The world is full, however, of "Christians" who draw the circle tight,
    excluding many with whom they do not agree. I may draw my circle too
    broad -- for I include other faith traditions -- but I'd rather err in
    that direction.
