    Techie2000 The crowd would sing:

    Hint: It's not the fact that they are all politically outspoken

    Rev. Jesse Jackson
    Rev. Jerry Falwell
    Rev. Al Sharpton

    They are all clerics?

    They all suffer from Foot-in -Mouth diease?

    They all love the limelight?

    They all think they speak for their respective groups?

    Techie2000 The crowd would sing:

    Ding ding ding. We have a winner. I wonder, why does it seem that the people on the extremes of either side are all clerics?

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    Bingo, now let's all pray.

    Instant credibility is my guess. Though these are poor examples of credibility...

    LissaKay Oh ... Really???

    My answer would be that they all set my teeth on edge and induce severe nausea.

    They may all be clerics but all clerics are certainly *not* like them.

    To draw that assumption is very flawed logic as is the belief they speak for any but those who follow them.

    But of course!
    My statement said that "they" think they speak for their respective groups.

    We have religious fanatics in this country and they call them Christians. But way back when we had the Catholics and the Crusades and then the Spanish Inquistion.
    So, I guess it's the Christian vs the Muslim fanatics.

    Sorry, I should have put the comments on Catholicism on a different line.
    What I was referring to was each religion has fanatics and people speaking out thinking that the majority of people think like they do. Only the Catholics did it on a grander scale.

    Does anyone think that maybe I should get one of those mail-order DD's, or ordinations?

    The Reverend Martin J Yazdzik

    Has rather a nice ring to it?

    I used to be a cardinal at DSLR, but, then the rules changed.

    That's kind of sad too, now that the ex-archbishop is out of work, I was thinking of returning to the courtroom, and taking him in as a partner. We'd call ourselves the "Cardinals Law."

    Sounds, as well, like a good Telly series....

    Thank you, Yaz, for using the word 'Telly', that made me happy...
