55. Maybe it doesn't to you. But you're not the only person in America.
Did it ever occur to you that this might be important to others; that you may not have all the answers; that decent people of religious faith are also worthy of being heard and having their legitimate concerns advanced?

I'm sick to death of the kind of elitist arrogance and snobbery I see reflected among so many of my fellow liberals any more.

Since when are we so perfect that we can look down our nose at others?
