  The controversy would indeed have been significantly less, because it
  would only make you look pretty stupid and would not insult anyone who
  actually like and want to use if, when, and unless.

  Good.  Keep on thinking that.  However, when your "opinion" is about
  other people and it is factually and definitely _wrong_, expect to be
  criticized for it.  If you cannot deal with criticism, guess who cannot
  handle opinions different from their own.  Guess what people think when
  you have to invoke "religion" to attack people whose opinions you cannot
  handle.  Do you think anyone actually _fails_ to understand who is the
  real culprit of all of your accusations?  Get a better grip on yourself.

  Norway is now run by a priest from the fundamentalist Christian People's
  Party, the fifth largest party representing one eighth of the electorate.
  Carrying a Swiss Army pocket knife in Oslo, Norway, is a criminal offense.
