she's writing a novel

a lot of her writing tends to be tongue-in-cheek. this is because she grew up in an evangelical tradition which was more concerned about where else she might be putting her tongue.

The Romans had the right idea throwing Christians to the lions...

...and here is yet another reason I wish they had finished the job.

I am just so damn weary of the crazy Christian conservatives. Their arrogance and their stupidity. And I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the fact that most of them are too dumb to understand their own religion. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the fact that people like myself, who reject said religion, know more about it than 99.9% the people who embrace it.

Whenever I rant about hating religion in general and most Christians in particular, I get a gentle response from any Christians in my company (of either a conservative or a liberal persuasion) that Christianity is about a personal RELATIONSHIP with Jesus. I say, that's lovely. But that (a.) doesn’t leave you off the hook for being a moron and (b.) doesn’t explain why you feel the need to involve the constitution, the White House, the Senate, and the citizens of a secular society in your “personal relationship.” You found Jesus, and now you're going to bully the government into bullying society? This doesn’t sound very personal to me. What are the dictates of your “personal relationship” doing before secular governmental organizations and legislative bodies? I am considerate enough not to fuck my boyfriend on the senate floor – would you please extend this same courtesy and leave the expression of your intimate relationship with God off the floor of the senate as well?

Thanks!
