“Freedom is my religion.”
I’ve encountered the same thing but on a smaller scale. I’m a Republican who is not a Christian. I’m an atheist who is not a liberal. I’m a scientist who believes that anthropogenic global warming is hogwash.
And I had to smile when Mr. Condell spoke about the threat of “cultural guilt” — which is what I call “guilticulturalism.”
On a related note, Oliver Thomas at USA Today claims that “religion makes it easier to be decent.” Maybe for some people but too many people use religion as an excuse to be less than decent to anyone of another faith. Religion is not necessary or sufficient to produce decency.
