Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

You’d think that the events of the past couple of years would have taught Americans a lot about the danger of mixing religion and government, of the value of separating church and state. But no: Four out of five Americans do not understand the Constitution. Of that group, I’d have to guess that the vast majority are Christians; I doubt there are many American Hindus (or Buddhists or what-have-you) out there who think it’s a good idea to erect Judeo-Christian monuments in government buildings. It matters not to the Bible-thumpers. They’re gonna show up and shove God — their God — down your throat whether you like it or not. (And by the way, you’re going to hell.)
