Mayor Michael Bloomberg
is defending his decision to exclude religious leaders from New York
City's commemoration of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, saying
Friday that "government shouldn't be forcing" religion "down people's
Fuck you Michael Bloomberg! How is it "forcing religion down people's throats" to have religious ceremonies at the 9/11 site? You can participate without believing anything. Who cares?
We had a big Discussion over lunch and Son objected that having religious ceremonies in the public square was the slippery slope to creationism in the public schools etc. He didn't think there was any way to draw the line. But surely there is. We just tell the fundamentalists: no respect for your "values" or your idiotic ideas about the origin of species. We allow, and promote, all the superficial religiousity anyone pleases--school prayer, religious ceremonies at Ground Zero for 9/11, crosses on hilltops, but give no ground to your stinking conservative "values."
Of all the detestable things that the evangelicals have done the worst is destroying the pleasure of religion. Now we can't have religious goodies without worrying that they give support to the lower class stinking shit evangelicals and their detestable conservative views. Up the ass of the working class! Evangelicals eat shit--die you detestable, stupid, tasteless filth.
