Jake, that got an audible chuckle. Thankfully no one at work asked what was so funny. :) As for all y’all talking out of your butts…
I used to let myself get all kinds of indignant when I read about the silly things fundies do. Now, I laugh. It keeps me sane. I do still wonder, though, what path of knowledge and experiences it would take to shake their hardened assumptions enough to break out of such simplistic thinking. In reality, […]
