I'm really not a bitch.
Of course, this is the forum where I bitch to the world, so maybe it's appropriate.
It's just one of those nights when I'm channeling in-your-face Elton John lyrics like, "You almost had your hooks in me, didn't ya dear?" and "I'm still standin'! Yeah, yeah, yeah!"
If you know me at all, you know what I'm talking about.
What to bitch about ... how about Michael Newdow's effort to ban prayer from the inauguration? (I've always thought that this guy was the atheist version of Judge Roy Moore.)
My problem with the whole PDR (public display of religion) thing is people on both sides give PDR way too much credit. They think PDR is going to unleash an uncontrollable wave of religious fervor -- Michael Newdow's worst nightmare and Roy Moore's fondest dream.
It doesn't work that way, folks. Jesus said as much. So, let's recognize PDR for what it is -- at best a general, ceremonial, nicey-nice public acknowledgement of some higher power.
So, Mr. Newdow, you can relax. As long as that's all the "religion" your children ever get, they will be quite safe from any real chance of conversion.
UPDATE: We apparently had some weird font issues. Hope you guys can read everything now. :)
