LOL! Thanks, Lydia. :) With links, no less!
That does strike me a bit odd, in retrospect, that I hadn't thought of Calvinism...;-)

Never heard of speciesism...

cronyism
syncretism
anachronism
stoicism
athleticism

You really shouldn't post things like this, Kara. Now I'll probably go through the rest of the night subconciously alert for more "isms." ;-)
