Mike, let's not get into a long conversation about this one. I think you
are wrong that this particular article is religiously based. However, I
will concede to a broader issue you are implying.

I admit that I have a Liberal background and a clear Liberal bias. Although
I try to keep it under control, I do jump on conservative-based fallacies
more than I jump on liberal-based fallacies. I do not use an even hand on
both sides of the fence.

Whenever I apply myself to a particular issue, I like to think I am
scientific and fair. However I fully admit that I do not apply myself as
often or as long toward some causes as with others. This doesn't mean that
I don't think they deserve as much support, but I allow my pet peeves to
grab more of my attention than other deserving issues.
