Considering that it was three sentences, mainly tangential to a
lot of interesting stuff I was writing about, and it's inspired
two partisan responses whereas everything interesting about the
post has been ignored so far, I don't think that "less holy wars"
can be claimed as a benefit. :-/
These days I don't allow myself to be drawn into holy wars about
any topic less important than sex. I recommend that as a goal
to strive for.
