    When I said:

    One of our diarist's points is that there are signs that this alliance is beginning to deteriorate, as the basic differences between historically authentic Christianity (Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy) and the johnny-come-lately evangelicals re-commence eating at the seam-welds of an always fragile alliance.
    I was not intending to pass judgment on any specific person's religious choices; but I was attempting to illustrate the deep-seated conflicts between fundamentalist evangelical Protestants and members of Christian denominations which can prove they were in open business during the first half of Christianity's existence.

    As my background is Roman Catholic, I'm accustomed to a certain way of stating these things. And, re-reading my comment, I now realize that it could be construed so as to offend fundagelicals because they are fundagelicals. I realize I should have used more level-headed language there.

    I apologize for any such problems.
