Possibly or he could be one of those rare honest religious people. I have met a few in my life.

On the other hand I don't think Jeremy, I mean ecce Homo will be back.

Why is it so bad to admit that a faith is irrational to ones who don't have faith?

It isn't bad. It is extraordinarily rare in my experience for a religious person to be that frank and open about the subject of faith. I applaud you. I wish all those who use faith as a means knowledge would be so honest and admit that they have no objective evidence.

Didn't say anything about "bad". And it's irrational, period.

Like I said: You really don't know what you're actually admitting.

AND you failed to stick your flounce.
