PZ Myers and wafergate

Anybody who's anybody must have heard about PZ Myers and the communion wafer brouhaha.
Well, I am a moderate Christian, I've been known to pray and read the Bible regularly and attend communion. So how did I feel about this?

Yes, Myers behaved like a jerk. Yes, Myers went overboard. Yes, he disrespected my beliefs. BUT it is his opinion and he is entitled to it. And even I do not believe that the wafer is the actual body of Christ. I do not worship it as such ( wouldn't it be idolatry?) I will still read his blog and love it. That's how much I hate religious fundamentalist shrills. Bill Donahue, you do not speak for me. Go and stand in the corner with Jerry Falwel, Pat Robertson and James Dobson.

This post seriously made my day.

As a Catholic living in the midst of the so-called Bible Belt, I can more than commiserate!

Can I get an "amen"?
