Great article Marty -- thanks! Sorry Cheese, I saw no disrespect to Mayan culture in this article. The fact that you could be "mutilated, shredded and killed" had no judgement attached to it. It's a true statement that provoaked a reaction in you. In addition, there was no absolution for the atrocities committed in the name of Christianity, Islam, or anything else for that matter -- it is what it is.
