drsved: Thanks for the word Abecedarian.
Slava and Perry, especially Perry who should know, Abecedarianism was a 16th century Anabaptist cult that shunned all learning, even the ABCs. We have them today, I once heard a self taught preacher call The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary a Theological Cemetery.
