I once had a conversation with a fellow employee along the same vein as in your article. This fellow claimed to be such a devout Christian too, and yet vowed that he and his wife would never bring a child into such a wicked world. Oh, and he claimed that he had an uncanny knack of being able to know the truth, like how he knew the Pope was going to go to Hell and other similar revelations about Catholics in general.

I'm fairly certain every age has had their fair share of people like that, both in good times and bad. I probably shouldn't be so amused by it.
