    On the one hand you have to give them credit for being honest about what they think they're supposed to believe is true. On the other, it can get a little tiring being referred to as a treasonous, jesus-murdering communist.

    Still, they have now informed me that my agnosticism is, itself, a religion. I think they're full of crap, but I'm not certain. Does that make me pope? Am I now infallible in matters of disbelief?

    (the one time I got put into the "what do you believe" corner by two parents of other kids, I had the good luck to have one of them be catholic-lite and the other be baptist-NRA member of the Church of My Pastor Has a GED. When in doubt, throw out some "fact" that is a matter of absolute pride to one, and absolute murderous blasphemy to the other - i.e., "when in Belfast, make sure the two Christians kill each other before they notice you")

    Truth is, I don't know whether jesus was a real person, nor do I really care. "know jesus, know peace. No jesus, no peace. Real men love jesus. You're with us or you're against us."

    ("one nation under god" seems to have gone out of style since '08 - and certainly the "indivisible" part, eh, Gov. Perry?)
