I have a suspicion that that photo of squid guts in the last post is going to make a few people feel squeamish, and now I’m going to show something even worse: Bill O’Reilly. <cue frantic screams from everyone…”More squid guts! Please! Anything but Billo!”>
Of course Billo is outraged at the news from Washington state. How dare they allow atheists to express themselves? This is a Judeo-Christian nation, and only Christians are allowed to have a voice in the public square (Jews, too, as long as they’re quiet and willing to pretend that they’re pre-Christians).
He urges his listeners to howl dementedly at Governor Gregoire. I may not have quite the reach of Mr Falafel, but I’ll suggest that you write polite, supportive letters to Gregoire as an antidote. If you want a little instant gratification, there’s also a poll to crash: Under freedom of expression do you approve of the atheist representation at the State Capitol?. It’s split 51:49 right now.
