Em gave me The Year of Living Bibically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible by A.J. Jacobs for Christmas.
I liked it pretty well, as in, i actually finished it. It's a pretty affectionate look at some of the silly laws in the Bible.
But i am not here to give you a book review.
Here is a quote from the book;
It's why i don't know what to do with Jasper. If i give him some religion, then he might become obsessed and go Guru Gil on me. Then again, if i give him no religion, he could descend into moral anarchy. They're both so risky. I feel like i can't win.
Jasper is the author's 2 year-old son. Guru Gil is a religious fanatic.
So, the the obvious end result of no religion is moral anarchy. Nice dude, really nice. I can't wait to tell my child that she's a moral anarchist.
The really annoying part of the quote is that it's pretty casually tossed out, like everyone KNOWS that those of us without religion are amoral, serial-killing, dog-raping, baby-hating, 401k-embezzling, wife-swapping, 7/11-robbing, public-spitting scofflaws.
I am really sick of this attitude. If i am an atheist, i must have no morals. It's just a fact. I guess i need to accept it.
Gotta go. I'm off to steal the neighbor's newspaper and kick the cat.
