After five years of defending your freedom from religious zealots who think your life is worth less than your ability to live without fear of their faith, my brother has concluded his service to Uncle Sam and arrived home early Saturday morning. Sadly, I've been my usual busy bee-type self and haven't been able to make it home to see him yet.
However, after my talk today
I'll be driving some more to go give him a welcome home hug. I've cleared out Monday and Tuesday in my schedule (which, for me, is quite an accomplishment) to spend with him, so don't expect to hear much from me. Despite having no heart and no morals on account of not believing that a Cananite jew rose from the dead, I have missed my brother dearly every day he was gone. It will be a relief to see him again.
(I will miss dementor girl
for three days...things are going stupidly well there...
In the meantime, you guys should take a minute to go sign the FFRF's letter to president Obama
asking him to honor the judge's decision regarding the unconstitutionality of the national day of prayer. Keep faith and the government separate - it keeps me from having religion forced upon me, or even annoyed by it being suggested I should pray, and it keeps the evil pinko, commie atheists from passing legislation to take away your right to believe as you choose (because we're totally trying to do that).
