Rants And Comments

The Coloradan has a fun opinion piece up, complaining that atheism is becoming the US national religion. It’s a scattershot argument, at once claiming a near 80% Christian majority and demanding protection from persecution, since we are a republic, not a democracy. A fun read. Anyway, I commented there, but I can’t tell whether it …
