Itís gone!!! I left a comment last night on Uncommon Descent that contained no name-calling, no hateful references and no ad hominem attacks but simply disagreed with what she wrote and this morning, I find that the comment has become one with the snows of yesteryear. How can someone call themselves a journalist with any integrity and remove comments they donít agree with? OíLeary wrote:

Here is what I wrote:
† †Why on earth would my faith owe these people anything? My faith in Jesus and my acceptance of evolutionary biology doesnít hinge on whether or not these people are atheists. These people were atheists long before they supported evolution. And evolution has been around a lot longer than they have.
Somehow that was too much for her to handle.
