I called the writer to task ("arrogant," simplifying 2 billion human beings into abstractions, "get a clue") for this sentence: It is doubtful that Benedict and the two billion Catholic faithful understood the dimensions of the ticking bomb in the fact of asking the question, which could undermine the Christian religion and the other monotheistic religions. I guess it was regarded as an ad hominem attack. I meant the tone of the article was hubristic, not the writer himself (I don't know the writer except for this one article) in lumping together 2 billion catholics; seemed a little unfair to catholics who are intelligent, thinking INDIVIDUALS like the rest of us.
