Build a shelter

Not that I'm an alarmist, but the continuing evidence of strong links between the Bush administration and Christian Fundamentalists is scaring the beejeesus out of me. For some background reading, check out an article in the Village Voice.

I don't know what's worse. On one side we have a portion of Muslims who seem to delight in slaughtering innocent people in the name of religion, and on the other we have Christian Fundamentalists whose single wet dream is the apocalypse.

Hey, I just want to play video games, watch porn, and eat nachos. In no particular order. And I would like to be able to do these things without some religious freaks ruining my mojo. You believe in God? Good for you. Now shut the fuck up and leave me and mine alone.

I just installed a pool (above ground, and no, you aren't invited over. Well, okay, if you're Courteney Cox, you have an open invitation. I guess my wife would extend the same courtesy to Brad Pitt or Mel Gibson. But no one else!). I'm thinking I should have built a bomb shelter (same open invitations apply).

It's unfortunate that conservative political ideology has been taken over by religious numb-nuts. I'm conservative in the sense that I believe in brutalizing criminals, low taxes, and no welfare. Unfortunately, the whole religion thing is driving me nuts.
