I chuckle at these, but feel guilty in the process!
Actually, Hyperdox Herman is the stereotypical 'convert' in the minds of many 'cradles.' I find it reassuring that most of the posters here poking fun at poor Herman appear to be converts. All too often when we are in one 'grouping' or another in life, we find it easy to lump 'others' with a stereotype rather than get to know that person and understand them more fully.
If anyone wants to come up with a " 'Cradled' Mary or John", give it a whirl. I suspect there is more for all us to learn through a bit of self-effacing humor!
