thanks to boo over at boo's tattoos for this article. i hear quite a bit from the christian right about how they feel persecuted in america because secularism is 'taking over.' well, aside from the obvious- this country was founded on the belief that there should be no state religion- the country was also founded on the premise that there be no religious persecution. it's called the first amendment of the constitution of the united states of america. no, it wasn't written by god- but maybe that's a good thing.
