Taking Their Ball And Going Home

Hemant has a great story about invocations at government meetings. There was a dustup in NC that caused a council to terminate all invocations because they couldn’t get their Christian way. They would not accept any other religion’s right to inclusion, so they gave up.

Excellent. Although it was a circuitous route, the desired outcome was achieved. The fact is that freethinkers don’t give a fuck about invocations. The word means “to invoke”, and is typically used to petition authority or a deity. What atheist would bother with that stupid shit? What minority religion would really want to make a show of their beliefs in a public forum? Most of us know damn well that it’s fucking rude at best and discriminatory at worst. We’re just doing a little jiu-jitsu to let the Christians know that their blessing is not needed nor is it appropriate.

Once again I say to Christians: stop trying to inject your beliefs into everything. The pranks will stop when you do.

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
