[ExI] People of Faith, not

I was musing here a while back about the need for a good term to 
place in contrast with the sanctimonious "People of Faith"--which 
cashed out, of course, as "people who believe things on the basis of 
insufficient or no evidence" or "people of gullibility." It's 
disappointing that the atheists among our number can't use "People of 
Athe" or "People of aith" because the link with the root word isn't 
instantly obvious. "People of evidenth" is too cute by half. Ah well.

But it does suggest that adherents of the vile godless sexual 
aberration might choose to become known proudly as "People of Gayth."
