    Do we really need to start up this debate again? The guy is nuts, let's leave it at that, please.

    Are we talking apples and/or oranges here? These people have long been rabidly nuts, whether or not you believe in their cause. We had them here from out of town some years back. They believe so strongly in the sanctity of life that one of them took a very life-threatening swing at someone with a baseball bat. (and that individual was in the area on legitimate business, not seeking an abortion or even attempting to visit the women's facility that was being protested.)

    ...exactly...I was making the point that, while the...

    ...guy setting himself on fire, is clearly mentally ill, and a danger to himself, the other folks are a serious danger TO OTHERS....

    ...they have a lot to do with this story, DK...

    ...my point is obviously that there are all different kinds of "crazies" emmeshed in debates about religious issues. BarnGoddess chose to focus on a man who is clearly mentally ill, and harmful to himself apparently to protest a narrower religious definition of school breaks. In the same category, (although far worse, in law enforcements' opinion), are the operation rescue folks who also protest violently in the name of religion, only they are violent towards others, including direct physical attacks on medical professionals and law enforcement...

    I think everyone concurs that this guy is nuts. But as far as starting up this debate again, my opinion is that it should be started up again at every opportunity so that people can begin to understand the Constitutional concept of the Separation of Church and State. And hopefully realize that this concept is not anti-religious.
