--Chesterton

I still have a book by Chesterton on my reading list. I'm looking forward to it.

In case you don't get back over there, I responded to your comment about my comment on CCS. You're right; I shouldn't slam the Jesuits. The point I was trying to make was that what Francois was doing seemed to be on par with rejecting Catholicism while embracing the Inquisition. I just wasn't very clear about it.

Diesel, don't worry, I saw where you were going with the reference. I appreciate the clarification. We're both good!
