    This is a dairy about the life and philosophy of a very estimable person, and someone wants to crank the discussion around to minimize his contributions because of his religious beliefs and argue that all religions are false, idiotic, illogical, useless, offensive to the world, the bane of his/her existence (pick any three.)  Is this going to develop into a permanent DK meme?  The quotes the diarist used reflect Bishop Tutu's personal beliefs and are, at the least, pretty inoffensive.

    The greatest attributes of Bishop Tutu are his courage and his humanity -- his courage in the face of apartheid and his humanity in his inclusiveness, humility, and compassion.  To the degree that he inspires that in others, he is a great leader spiritual or otherwise.  If you want to convince the DK readership at large all religions are false, idiotic, illogical, useless, offensive to the world, the bane of your existence (pick any three,) consolidate your philosophy, summon up your arguments, and write a diary.
