I especially liked Don Miller's comment on a 'certain type of overzealous people.' I know one or two people like that.

Why no one ever asks people who make comments like Pat Robertson something like: "So you're saying this is the work of the devil. Wow, you must be really close with the guy if you know what's he up to?" :lol:
