There will always be ignorant pigs of various sorts. I have learned over time to accept this. Those who would seek to disarm others to make the world a safer place are delusional.

It's so misinformed, it's comical. I can no more bring about a change in Rev. Smith's views through logic than I can climb aboard a brick with an handkerchief in my hands and sail across the Atlantic. He would not recognize logic if it slapped the spittle out of his flappy jowls. I'll hold my torpedoes for another adversary. Besides, it appears his little boat has been crushed underfoot.
