Video of Temple Rituals Released

I guess the gloves are off, now. In America, where atheists are the most-hated minority, where 40% of people deny evolution, it’s typically off limits to bring attention to any article of faith. It’s a gentleman’s agreement: don’t mention how I pretend to drink my god’s blood and I won’t question your prophet’s marriage to a 9 year old girl. But the stakes are high. Mitt Romney has a slight edge in the polls. It must be too tempting now to resist pointing to that man behind the curtain.

But beware of the law of unintended consequences. Start laughing at someone else’s religion, and then you might find yourself amused by the absurdity of all religion. And after that, if you’re lucky, you’ll find yourself shedding your faith in the state as cure-all. That’s why I like Obama. He answers Romney’s bland pragmatism with raw nihilism. If we can only survive another four years of this self-destruction, we might have nothing left to rely on but the truth.
