     The thought of Jane Fonda being honored as one of the "Century's 100
     Most Influential Women" is repugnant to me--unless she is cited for
     being the most honored traitor in America.  The story of her July

     story--Fonda is a traitor!

     Postmodernists are already saying that Christianity is not based on
     fact but on a culturally driven belief system.  Are Christians
     careless with facts?  I'm afraid that they are if the story sounds
