Satan is doing one hell of a job “rebuilding that wall” for the good of all citizens. It will mean less discrimination against atheists and help Christians to learn to love their neighbors. I suspect it will not be the end of the long running battle between social conservatives and secular liberals. Maybe we should light a prayer candle to help them or would money produce different results? Maybe then Christians and Satanists will be able to board the same flights together.
Meanwhile followers of the Cuddly One are still being tempted to not take personal responsibility for their own actions. I suppose that is because the Catholic Church leads by example.
Can you spot any flaws in these arguments by a recent Templeton Prize winner? I strongly disagree with this article that teaching Evolution should be a sensitive issue.
“We are here because one odd group of fishes had a peculiar fin anatomy that could transform into legs for terrestrial creatures; because the earth never froze entirely during an ice age; because a small and tenuous species, arising in Africa a quarter of a million years ago, has managed, so far, to survive by hook and by crook. We may yearn for a ‘higher answer’– but none exists”.
I grew up in the 60’s and used to joke how parents didn’t care that much. They laughed holding their martinis as we rode our bikes through the DDT fog behind the truck and smoked in the car with closed windows. My father punched me in the eye when I came home crying that I was bullied. He denied me wearing glasses and said my eyes would grow weaker. Bottles of lye under the sink and loaded guns were in the nightstand drawer. We watched as grandma flushed the newborn kittens down the toilet. We all knew the sting of a leather belt well. I was pleasantly surprised when I left home. Things actually got easier, LOL.
