Onward, Christian bullies!

Yesterday I received an e-mail from someone I barely know (and I can't remember why this person would have had my e-mail address, either). The e-mail was about a poll that's currently running at MSNBC, asking whether "In God We Trust" should remain on our coinage. The e-mail suggested that this be forwarded to "every Christian you know so they can vote on this important topic".

But here's the best part: The e-mail concluded with: "This is not sent for discussion, if you agree forward it, if you don't, delete it."

Okay, so let me get this straight: If I don't agree with the quaint notion of theocracy expressed in your unsolicited e-mail, you're telling me to shut up. I'm sorry, but I find that...well, let's be diplomatic and just say rude.

Here, then, is my response to yet another ill-mannered fundamentalist: I hope all of you currently reading this blog will go to the poll and vote in favor of the wonderful concept of the separation of church and state. Here's the link: MSNBC poll. Vote now!
