I sincerely hope that no citizens participate.

They should have groups read the Silmarillion. It's much better writing and a better story.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

What pisses me off most is that it's always atheists, like the FRFF, who has to stand up to the Christian fundamentalists in this country.

Reasonable theists have exactly as much reason to be outraged (and terrified) by the erosion of the Wall of Separation as anyone else. I wish more of them were like you, and actually thought about the ramifications, Shai Hulud.
Thanks for finding me reasonable. And beyond just Establishment Clause issues, there's the No True Scotsman fallacy when these types rear their heads; whose branch of Christianity do they want? How many other Christians suddenly aren't Christians? Even from a non-secular standpoint, it would be foolish and prone to fall into infighting. Some folks just don't learn from what happens every time a group mixes religion and government!

Need to think of a witty signature.
