She's from Indiana. Indiana's brown shirts in the Senate are singularly disinterested in what I have to say. Since Indiana is a part of Jesusland, the majority of my fellow states folk probably applauded her citing "prayer" in her opening remarks.

I was speaking with one of my oldest friends the other day and I told him I found it remarkable that human beings hadn't outgrown christianity yet. The majority (at least in this country) are still clinging to Medieval, superstitious nonsense in the 21st century. FFS, how is it possible that there are still people alive who cannot see that it is quite obvious that human beings are non-essential life forms on this planet, let alone in the Universe. That fact is not something to be proud of, but neither should it instill fear and the consequent fantasies about eternal life and incredibly inflated valuation of humans. It's absurd.
