Reality v. Evangelicals FTW
Okay, I was perusing the political blogs I scan over every day, and I just had to copy this comment about hardcore religious conservatives. Never before have I seen the reality of the situation summed up so succinctly and clearly:

So if you want to run your lives based on a text written by folks who wiped their ass with their hand and thought the world was flat, rock on.

Rock on, indeed. Just don't force your questionably-grounded beliefs down my freaking throat.

sarcasm intended, humor of grain of salt required

Y'know, speaking of that book he mentioned, I have to ask myself something Didn't that guy that died at the end wander around the desert for years? Wouldn't that give you sun stroke, and possible insanity? I mean, I'm a bit skeptical of the whole thing really. I'll believe that he walked on water, but ... it was probably winter. And yes he may have cured the sick ... because vitamin C cures scurvy, and salt prevent goider.

Not only that, but you name me one jewish mother who doesn't think her son is practically the son of god. And heaven forfend he take interest in girls, or they might be called the whore of babylon by some in an attempt to make them less appealing. The more I think about it, the more I think it was taken so far out of context, and parts removed that no longer make sense, that no one person can tell you just what went on. It was a recollection of a bunch of people after all.

And everyone knows everyone has a photographic memory, so moments in time can be recalled exactly as they were, no matter who saw what, and at what position and angle they saw it in. I mean, you know that crimes everywhere are instantly solved by eye witness accounts right? Right?...

So as I was saying, I'm not a big fan of religion. It may bring love and community and hope, but that's not all it brings. And that's why it's not for me.

curse my lack of foresight to not re-read the title!
It should read:
