I'm afraid that for Mr. Will to accept our positions would require him to
give up his current religious views. He's not likely to do that for a bunch
of internet "extremists" (from his point of view). He's a dinosaur. Most
dinosaurs won't be able to adapt to the changes of the next couple of
decades. He'll be a forgotten voice in 15 years or less...
