Ah, how I love the Internet. I was looking for completely unrelated topics when I hit upon this Letter to the Editor at the Colorodoan, a newspaper out of. . wait for it. . . Colorodo.
The actual letter is a travesty. But the comments as they sit right now are a triumph. Take this one rather eloquent author:
The founding fathers intended the separation of church and state to protect religion first, the State second. In the last thirty years – the push to inject God into politics has resulted in not only a well deserved backlash, but the complete corruption of the church (except within Christian left, which are of course, ridiculed by their brothers on the right).
I was raised Christian and have chosen to believe otherwise, and I find myself having to try harder and harder to respect this nations core religion – when it used to be easy.
