    Jun 25 2013: Because, of course, we don't get enough people committing the No True Scotsmen fallacy, or using the word "faith" as if it referred to one thing alone, when she's talking about completely different concepts, in different fields of human experience?

    Yes. Kudos on preaching lukewarm woo, Lesley. Kudos on your lack of originality, too! I too have faith that many more will say the exact same nonsense you have, and people will applaud.
