    ...  and so perhaps my 2 cents will be dismissed out of hand.  Nonetheless, I sincerely believe you wrote this diary from an earnest sense of outrage, but I also believe your feelings are not justified.  Hunter's diary has the tone of being arrogant and dismissive toward religion, but I think that's a misreading.  

    The mocking language regarding the earth resting on the back of a giant space-turtle...  it definitely comes across as being a slap at religion.  But the POINT of the diary -- which was very clearly expressed -- is that religious viewpoints should not affect public policy on any matter where there is countervailing scientific fact.  We are not talking about matters of morality or opinion.  The issue on the table is fact, and when a U.S. Congressman wants religious dogma to be given equal time with established scientific theory in public schools, I agree with Hunter that full mockery is justified.

    All that aside, you have drawn well over a hundred comments and very few recommends.  I think you should reconsider your views regarding front-pagers, and Hunter in particular, and you should remove this diary.

    I'm not trying to shout down your view.  I really just think you're having a reaction that is unwarranted, and is frankly more insulting than the original diary could ever hope to be.  Accusing all the people who make this site "work" of being hateful...  it's not fair, it's not true.
