      If you accept the definition of pagan as:
  Pagan \Pa"gan\, a. [L. paganus of or pertaining to the country,
     pagan. See {Pagan}, n.]
     Of or pertaining to pagans; relating to the worship or the
     worshipers of false gods
 that makes the various sects of the judeo-christian belief system
 pagans as far as my parent's belief system is concerned (personally,
 I find most these belief systems indistinguishable from village ojhas
 in India; [witch doctors who believe in gods of thunder, lightning,
 electricity, etc, and who believe in exorcism as the proper
 treatment for snake bites], but who am I to come between people and
 their superstitions).

Honorable, adj.: Afflicted with an impediment in one's reach.  In
legislative bodies, it is customary to mention all members as
honorable; as, "the honorable gentleman is a scurvy cur." Ambrose
Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary"
