Hoo boy. Here we go again. Everybody got their victim goggles on?
Yeah. Silly laws. This whole thing is just another in a long line of stupid chest-shoves in the protracted "culture war". Gee, we've been picking our asses the exact same way for over a century now, so there must not be any reason to change. Great logic.
So what's the deal with this heathen godless commie judge?
Huh. So Judge Hamilton is actually the son and grandson of ministers, yet he understands that churchin' is for, well, church. Imagine that.
Next time just sing "Stairway to Heaven", and call it close enough.
Me, I'm just sick of this damned victim mentality these guys drape themselves in every time someone looks cross-eyed at them. I think maybe it's time an atheist ran for public office, with one eye on a targeted media campaign to point out all the hypocritical persecution and condemnation he'll face for testifying as to his Truth. Can you imagine if atheists organized and went door-to-door and popped up at public events and governmental events, and pushed their (non-)beliefs on everyone? Hey, it's their right. Free speech, chump.
I think the Christofascists (as opposed to regular people of faith who are grownups enough to keep it to themselves) need to look in their own hearts with honesty and humility, and see if they can figure out just where they get off both insisting that we all have to up with their personal beliefs in the public arena, and they get to push other (or again, non-) beliefs away and treat them like they're second-class ideas.
And we all know that that's never going to happen -- in fact, it's precisely the opposite. More to come on that subject.
