As a teacher of Roman history and the Latin language, I feel particularly strong resonance from this article.

I do not think Richard's comparison of the creationists to the Holocaust deniers is unwarranted. It's not a perfect parallel, but there are a great number of similarities. And yeah, strong emotions are evoked. To make the comparison that is made, though, is just to imply an opinion (which I agree with partly) that people should be as outraged by the words and actions of the creationists as they are about Holocaust-deniers'.
