20. I prefer: "It's nobody's business, nor are other's beliefs my business"
All this 'in your face' religion: I'm sick of the fish decals on cars. I'm sick of the T-shirts. And I'm sick of every politician trying to out-religion the next one.

Can't we talk about anything else in this country these days? Sorry, nothing against your post, but it is just so constant since the election.
