Anything the mayor does anymore, just makes my civic blood boil. What a smug idiot.

Re: “Further thoughts on the "strident secularism" that troubles John Kass

Ed - I like how people who are spiritual make odious choices and are judgment free. What planet do you live on?

(to the broader points in this post) Yes, reason is the acid acting upon any institution (religious or secular) that doesn't pass the common sense smell test.

You don't need any specific religious tradition to be kind, compassionate, self-sacrificing or good. You can just be those things. Off the rack. You don't need to go to Religious Tailors, Inc. to be measured and fitted with a hand-sewn suit.
