I just read another article about another person who did something horrible in the name of god. She killed her child* because she thought he was possessed by the devil.

Of course she’s insane, probably schizophrenic as they often have lots of fun god stuff going on, and it wasn’t the bible or any of that crap that made her kill her child but….

Imagine if she’d done something “good” for the kid or something positive where she lives and then said it was the jesus who made her do it. We wouldn’t stop hearing about it. There would be feel-good pieces on the news and in the papers all about the sweet woman with the two kids who fed the cats on her block because the jesus is telling her to do it.

Right? Right.

We can’t have it both ways, can we?

I did an interview on this web radio station. There was some technical nuttiness involving “lag” that interfered with us having a completely excellent time, so it was just an excellent time.
