on April 20, 2012 :
Oh, brother. This is the most egregious, self-aggrandizing piece of clap-trap I have had the displeasure to read in a long time. What Martin is doing is nothing less than calling for a Catholic jihad - yet another Crusade and Inquisition. I'm sure the Pope is beside himself with bloody-minded glee.
From his first paragraph, Martin shows his utter ignorance and stilted world-view. "One of the single most profound tragedies...is that one may no longer defend a belief, much less a religion." Oh, really? According to whom? To Martin, and very few others, I'll wager. The whole bloody world is "defending [their] beliefs [and] religion," or has Martin been hiding under a rock the past few decades?
But, wait, it gets better. Martin goes on to condemn his perceived inability to defend his beliefs as "akin to naively, and arrogantly, 'forcing one's personal beliefs' on ohers." He then wastes over 15,000 words trying to do just that, only the beliefs he wants the entire world to have are his.
And so Martin's screed continues. His logic is so skewed as to not resemble any logic system at all. His arguments are either retreads of the Middle Ages or utterly invalid and, indeed, even self-defeating.
This is just what we need in America: another "army" of pseudo-religious fanatic fruitcakes seeking to force the rest of us to believe their poison. What's next, Martin? "Catholic" suicide bombers?
Oh, and make absolutely no mistake, Martin: I am in no way trying to force any beliefs - be they my own or the majority's - onto you. You have the absolute freedom and right to your own beliefs. What you do not have is the right to make me believe them.
If it were possible, I'd give this thing a negative multi-star rating.
