Oh ok I get it, thanks ben.  So the strategy then would be to point out that
Jeffrey Dahmer, Hitler and Ted Kaczynski were all catholic and then ask
David B. Hart why he and the pope are so intimately involved in the things
these men did, etc.

How can we clue this silly jerk and the New Atlantis that Fletcher is not
