2. I look at it this way...

...the Pharisees, the Holier-than-Thou's, all the American Exceptionalists and Dominionists -- in short, the Bigots (parenthetical side note here, did you know the word 'bigot' is an archaic derivation from, "By God?" Since that's how hypocrites and religiosity-mongers always try to use religion, as a club, to beat other people with) -- they're the ones who've given 'belief' -- of any stripe -- a bad name.

It just isn't worth it to get all bent out of shape about it.

Do your best to be accepting of everyone. The crankiest, nastiest, angriest people are the ones who are maybe as hurt and confused and hurt (but denying that they feel any pain at all) as anyone.

...Anyway, WTF am I doing up this late, anyway? Have a good one.
