Just to make things clear to anyone who wants to polish up an email accusing me of being a liberal secular humanist, homosexual agenda-pushing, Christian-persecuting, Satan-worshipping, Santa Monica lefty freak: I don’t give a good goddamn what you think and believe as long as it doesn’t involve forcing your views on me. You want to witness at me on the train platform? Knock yourself out; I’ll just keep reading my book. You want to threaten me to accept Jesus Christ as my personal savior at cost to my bodily person? Then we got problems, jack.
And that is just what these Dominionist assholes want: they want an America that’s all-Christ-worshipping, all the time. So, all of America’s Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jainists, Santeriaists, atheists, Deists, Wiccans and agnostics are right out of luck. And after that, it’ll be the Quakers and Unitarians the Seventh Day Adventists, then those damned Papists, followed by the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians, and then the Lutherans and the Congregationalists and the Mormons, and then the Baptists and Pentecostals will start infighting until there’s no one left except a bunch of inbread, thumbless jackasses who spend their days fighting each other in the ruins of Colorado Springs.
And do we really want that?
