26. No one's "Bashing" Christianity
...I personally think Jesus was a wonderful human being with all sorts of progressive ideas, like helping the poor and treating people as equals, and not judging those who're different than we are.

It's the Fundie followers of Jesus that I'll bash every opportunity I'm given. Because they are the enemy of enlightenment, and America has given them power and validation. They will keep as many people ignorant to science and reality as they can, and I consider that a dierct threat to the way I live.
