1. Perfect
Except Christians tend to take the Bible literally and anyone who doesn't is anti-god, anti-Christian, anti-American, anti-X. I live in the Bible Belt and if I can get a job were my schedule isn't dependant on attendance for a certain church or some stupid book, I'd admit myself into a psych ward. I'd be delutional to think that I found a real employer.
