I’ll tell you now, I love swearing for its own sake. But what I love even more is when someone as cool and rational as DanJ goes completely off. It’s something akin to watching a perfectly played chess match end when one player shoots the opposing king at checkmate with a rocket-propelled grenade. It’s glorious in its overkill.
It seems his recent encounters with religious folks, and the greater thread on the interwebs about civility when discussing religion vis-a-vis science, has finally come to a head and Dan, understandably, snaps, having been told he’s going to hell and is evil and sinful just once too many. And what a thing of beauty this rant is! Not only is it pure, unvarnished truth, but it is as cathartic to read as I’m sure it was to write.
