If they were ever worn during the Middle Ages, they would have been worn
as a Christian Symbol.

I agree that it's a double standard, which is why I addressed the point of
about the Horned God.

I was not criticizing your message, merely simplifying it, just as I simplified
my own.  I'm pleased to hear that it has been resolved, although it really
isn't any of my business.

Just as it shouldn't have been :)

Oh, I know.  It took me a long time to learn that, but I have gained the
confidence in my ability to express myself that *usually* when people
say nothing it doesn't bother me (There are some times when is is frustrating,
although this was not one of those cases).  I was merely commenting on the
nature of your message and the response it elicited, as opposed to the
nature of mine and the response it got me.  And one thing I have also
learned, is that when people start ignoring you, they rarely bother to
say so :)

It's a fair cop.

Ah well.  I'll change my notes...
