Oooh, that sounds a bit abrupt :)

I didn't for one minute suggest Trinity has _anything_ to do with 
religion, Isle of Man or Celtic origins, please show me where I did. 
What I wrote and implied was that the _images_ mentioned/linked to as 
replacements for the current TDE logos in this thread do have links to 
religion, the Isle of Man and Celtic origins.

As you point out, everyone is free to raise opinion, so I assume that 
includes me?
