To all,

Howard: Having read some of the recent posts by "Cummins" and other zealous
proponents of a strident anti-evolutionist variant of Christian belief, I
must register my utter and complete disgust.

Indeed, Cummins in his ignorance not only insults evolutionists but even worse, portrays a picture of Christianity which is quite ugly.

Howard: If I thought for a moment that in order to be a Christian I had speak,
think, or treat other persons in a manner anything closely resembling what
these posts exemplify, I would not simply walk away from Christianity, I
would RUN as fast as I could!

Thank God that Cummins is not representative of Christianity. I wonder how many Christians would see in Cummins the hand of the devil? Making Christianity look bad while pretending to be a Christian?

Howard: Fortunately, the Christian faith does not demand such behavior. In fact,
thank God, it discourages it.

Hear hear
