DURANGO SKEPTICS AND ATHEISTS NEWSLETTER JULY 2015

“Where is it written that if you don’t like religion you are somehow disqualified from being a legitimate American? What was Mark Twain, a Russian? If it is American to believe that God ordered Tribe X to abjure pork or that he caused Leader Y to be born to a virgin, why is it suddenly un-American to doubt the prime mover of this unimaginably vast universe of quintillions of solar systems would likely be obsessed with questions involving the dietary and biosexual behavior of a few thousand bipeds inhabiting a small part of a speck of dust orbiting a third-rate star in an obscure spiral arm of one of millions of more or less identical galaxies?”

― Hendrik Hertzberg, political commentator and former speech writer for Jimmy Carter (1943 –    )
