The only thing I would make someone feel inferior for is using a tool that's wrong for the job just because of 'personal preference'.

I write Ruby and JavaScript as easily 99% of my work, does that mean I never pick up Erlang or Scala or even C? Of course not, to do that out of stubbornness or some perceived loyalty to my platform would make me a very poor programmer indeed.

Besides, that's not what you're saying. Your comment was pretty well flat out saying functional programming is useless and people only do it to look smart. That, clearly, is a load of crap.
