Come now,don't take these things so seriously. The article in the link is a classic example of a great deal being made of very little. One person expressed a view - perhaps a tad ill-considered. It's nothing to get steamed up about.
It wasn't meant to come over that way. I pay very little heed to those type of views, as I suspect do most people, as they usually die a natural death very quickly. But, you do tend to find those type of people in positions of prominence. A classic case of engaging mouth before brain!
