End of silence

I know I've been quiet for too long.  I'll be blogging again this weekend.

As a start, I'd recommend savoring this irony - when the conservative right sued to display the nativity in a government building, they successfully opened the door for every other religion, and non-religion.

And now they're whining about the result!  Tsk.

I saw this on the news, and it made me get up and do a happy dance in my living room!

It made Boing Boing, and it made CNN. It will probably be pervasive news by Monday.

Already the comments in Boing Boing and on CNN are blaming the Atheists for being "douches" or "negative" or "angry".


It's weird, A Christian can tell me point blank that "EVERY knee will bend!" and that I am going to Hell, but he's doing so out of Christian Love?

But if I happen to mention that I think his philosophy is crazy, *I* am the angry one?

And when an Atheist does truly become angry at the hypocrisy and says something about it - Well! That's just Proof that Atheists are angry!

Crazy! They are wonderful, and anyone who questions wonderfulness must be angry.

I'm not sure if this is irony or schadenfreude. Perhaps it's also a good example of "be careful what you wish for".

This is what I try to explain to folks who think their religious paraphernalia should be allowed on government (public) property. If anything is allowed, it all must be allowed. Soon, there will be no free space on the property for the government to conduct business.

Most of the time the response reminds me of a deer in the headlights.

Well, I meant to start writing over the weekend, but I caught a cold on Friday and spent the weekend asleep.

Still feel like my head is full of cotton.

Looking forward to hearing about your research into Penn Mommy/Possummomma after the winter solstice!
