Yes indeed.  I'd known about this idea for a long time, but it was only 
after talking to a catholic about it* and learning that many people 
*literally* believe in it that I realised what a vile concept it really 
is.  It was then that I started thinking of religion in general, and the 
catholic church in particular, as an active force for evil in the world.

stupid, but /dangerous/ stupid.
