17. Unfortunately anti-discrimination laws protect them
Edited on Sun Aug-17-08 11:00 AM by MindPilot
so I have to work with a few. I'm pretty open about my non-belief and every damned one of the uber-religious thinks their mission is to show me the way to salvation.

Recently a woman who has been trying to save my soul for an easy two years now, showed me her desktop wallpaper; a picture from the Hubble. "That's God's eye" she told me.

I said "no, that's a nebula."

"What's a nebula?"

Not only easily manipulated like you say but also not the sharpest tools in the shed either.
