7. Sacred/Schmacred!
Would I RIOT if someone pooped on a cheap copy of the constitution. Would I go berserk if someone burned a flag?
No. No. No.
You can't burn or kill IDEAS.
I would still believe in the genius of Jefferson and Madison if someone trashed a copy of the bill of rights.
If I was a christian, I would still believe in my god, even if someone removed all supernatural references from a bible.
The whole argument is ridiculous. The problem is this "sacred" baloney. Theocratic egotists will tell us that we HAVE (!) to respect the word of their "God". Again, baloney. They need "sacredness" to keep up appearances, or the emperor in the sky has no robes.
That said, I have never personally dunked pages of ANY book in ANY potty ANYWHERE!
Plumbing is sacred to me...
