Okay, I admit it. I was cheering for Spain in the World Cup final for the simple reason that Spain is a Catholic country and the Netherlands is a Calvinist country. I exchanged emails about this with a Unitarian friend who was cheering for Holland on the grounds that their victory would be a victory for free-thinking over medievalism - his words. I was delighted that Spain and medievalism won. Of course, I also wish that the winds had been favorable for the Armada!
