At Least They Aren't Hiding It Anymore

There has always been a section of the self-described progressive community that, well, I don't know how else to phrase it, HATES practicing Christians. Usually it's been kept to mutters in faculty lounges, newsrooms, and the salons of the artistic class. I guess those muttering days are coming to an end. The other day I heard a Washington Post reporter on MSNBC openly lament that freedom of religion is included in the US Constitution, and now this from a syndicated radio host named Mike Malloy:
"MIKE MALLOY (04:56): They keep being killed, you know, their God, if this is where they want to look at it, keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement in - uh - uh - in - in, you know, in Alabama and Mississippi and Arkansas and uh Georgia and, uh, Oklahoma, you know, the Bible Belt. [imitates "preacher" voice] 'Where they ain't going to let no goddamn science get in the way -it says in the Bible, blah blah blah blah blah!

So, according to their way of thinking, you know, God, with his omnipotent thumb, reaches down here tonight and so far tonight has smashed about 20 people into a grease spot on Highway 12 or whatever the hell highway they live next to. It's sad, it's so sad for this kind of nonsense."
It's sad, alright.
