Joseph Stalin went to Seminary. He got kicked out for owning banned books and was of course an orthodox atheist, but still... History's most evil person (if judged by how many millions murdered) went to Seminary. As Michael J. Fox used to tell me in public service ads between Saturday morning cartoons... "That's one to grow on." Especially if you're in Seminary. But then again, Wes Craven did go to Wheaton.

Incidentally, it was recently pointed out to me that more people were killed in the average day of Stalin's regime of militant atheism than in the average decade of the Spanish Inquisition. That's also one to grow on.

But better perhaps to avoid the killing entirely.
