As someone loving the functional programming I'm really interested in why such "hostility" toward it? (Or maybe I misunderstood?)

Torally agree with functional programming being nothing new. But yet again is there anythibg in computer science that is really brand new? We do new with old stuff essentially, improving (or not) at each iteration. Well at least that's my perception of things so far.
