The original link was Joshua Rosenau's response to Todd Wood's post on
idolatry - it's excellent! Thanks for sharing it, Louise!

As far as "Why can we only point to two?" who don't go along with the
party line, I'd guess the social pressure resulting from the "idolatry"
Wood describes is pretty extreme. I find it much easier to be "out" as
an Evangelical Christian homeschooler to our local evolutionary
biologists than vice versa. Perhaps people like Wood are the beginning
of a tipping point...
