December 2010

What if most of the religion-based rancor, the anger and bile directed at gays, liberated women and non-believers, stems from jealousy? What if, deep down, they have some kernel of doubt, some nagging fear that all of the ritual, denial of pleasure and rule following is just pretend, and they aren’t getting anything out of it? And worse, all those bastards are living as they want, and they’re not going anywhere worse than you. Wouldn’t that be sad?

I don’t have a ton of specific requests for my funeral, but I recently came up with a pretty good one.

I ask that kazoos be distributed to all attendees, that they may join together in an all kazoo rendition of Amazing Grace.
