No, it's just evidence that an intellectual understanding of Christianity is not required.  I have preached to the mentally retarded and the psychotic, and guarantee you that intellectual elitism is a bigger spiritual stumbling block than either of those disabilities.

Definitely French poodles for the Avignon papacy.

But don't leave us Protestants out.  Henry VIII English bulldog, Martin Luther German Shepherd, a pair of Greater Swiss Mountain dogs for Calvin and Zwingli . . .


‘When Luther’s puppy [n. 116, Luther’s dog Tölpel is mentioned again and again in the Table Talk.] happened to be at the table, looked for a morsel from his master, and watched with open mouth and motionless eyes, he [Martin Luther] said, “Oh, if I could only pray the way this dog watches the meat! All his thoughts are concentrated on the piece of meat. Otherwise he has no thought, wish, or hope.”

Luther’s Works, Volume 54, Table Talk (Philadelphia: 1967), pp. 37, 38. May 18, 1532
