On religious freedom

Okay, so I know I've been remiss in my updating lately, and with the recent re-inauguration and the quote-crisis-unquote with Social Security and Condi naming "outposts of tyranny" and all, I've got metric buttloads of material. And it'll all come, fear not. But until I've got a few things nailed down in my own life, you're going to have to settle for this paragon of wingnuttery, courtesy of Atrios:
As Mr. Scott points out, the glorious Constitution is there to protect the rights of Christians to profess their faith. This country was founded by good Christians and the Constitution guarantees our right to express our religion.

It just is completely beyond me how we have allowed Liberals to deny us this guaranteed right.

Oh, they raise ridiculous arguments like other (false) religions would be "upset" if they were forced to pray alongside the righteous in schools or council meetings.
Surely those others would appreciate the opportunity to be saved. As God's chosen people, we Christians have the right to express our religion and praise tolerant, patient and merciful God, and I don't want to read any more letters from Liberals suggesting non-believers should be allowed to express their superstitions just because we Christians can express ours.

Although it does seem to be one "heterosexually yours" away from a missive from our friend Jesus' General, it looks like this might be one of those things that's just way too weird to be a hoax. It's been said before, by people far wiser than me - God, please protect me from your followers.
