Andrew Guillaume, I don’t understand why religious believers feel they must force their views onto others, but it seems to be a sad part of what it means for some people. Catholics and evangelical Christians in particular seem bent on legislating their religious superstitions and forcing more rational and sensible people to live by them.

Here in the United States, some of the same people who try to stop legal, civil marriages and prevent children from being cared for by same-sex parents have actually built a replica of Noah’s ark and teach quite seriously that the universe is 5,000 years old. Certifiably moronic.

And don’t even get me started about the audacity of the Catholic Church presuming to instruct people in morality, given the depths of the Church’s depravity.

And I don’t just mean their succoring of child sexual abusers.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
