The Law Of Unintended Consequences And The Separation Of Church And State

State of Protest has an interesting retrospective of his first two years of blogging, highlighting his best posts and giving an interesting glimpse into the ways blog readership expands and contracts over time. The post is reading as a nice guide to his site.

As part of that post, he highlights one of his more popular cartoons:

For their full slate of comics, click this link. They’ve really got a lot of really creative, hilarious, and inventive cartoons about politics and religion.  Some are really inspired and memorable.  For example, I don’t think I’m going to forget the one about the kid who gets Jesus and Santa Claus mixed up for a long time…

    That’s a really, really good hypothetical, right there. (And, of course, a good cartoon!)

    Of course, asking Republicans to follow things to hypothetical conclusions is a lost cause. When they were asking for special privileges for Bush, I kept asking “would you have wanted Clinton to have that power? What happens when a Democrat gets the presidency?” and they invariably would have a mental meltdown and change the subject.
