Re: Possible new name for "deity"


	So far, I have heard one person who, though himself not
 foffended, fears that others maybe offended by something. Umm, that
 is, in my book, not enough of a reason for change.

	I am also offended that I am denied my chance for worship by
 typing in Deity at various  intervals. Hey, I could even symlink
 Deity to Vishnu, and do away with rosary beads.

	BTW, I may also clain to be offended by all this talk that
 seems to imply theat the Deities are singular, and that too,
 apparently exclusively male. I find this very chauvinistic, and
 definitely exclusionary. 

	What does all this have to do with Debian?

 At West Point, the cadets had been full of bravado...But bravado was
 grounded in ignorance; true courage was possible only after one
 gained the visceral comprehension that death was the potential price
 of valor. Rick Atkinson, _The Long Grey Line_
