Cynicism which demonstrates a singular lack of knowledge about these  
great men's lives, their personal commitments as Christians and their  
deeply held motivations which transcended being mere shills for  
established religion.  Your scorn for the cross is not something to be  
proudly paraded for the admiration of the lost.
