I would really appreciate a little enlightenment on this.

There are folks (still!) who assert the world is flat and simply cannot be made round.


There are folks who assert airplanes will fall like a brick if they engine fails and simply cannot be made to glide.

There are folks who assert that the free market is fundamentally wrong and simply cannot be made to work.

There are folks who assert the color of your skin or the language you speak or the education you've received affect your worth as a human being, and if you have the wrong one of any of those attributes you simply cannot be made worthy.

Get the picture yet?

They are right in one sense: Red Hat cannot be made TOTALLY secure. But then, no operating system can. The only box that is secure is the one "still in the box", and even that one can be stolen. Those people are idiots, and biased/opinionated idiots at that. Red Hat can be secured pretty well, just like every other major Unix/Linux derivative out there.
