Don’t Let Thinking People Stand In Your Way!

From ASBO Jesus. It should go without saying, but just in case, I’ll make it explicit. This is not a jibe at religion.

    or 
    “We would like you TO come down …”

    Is that a British English (ASBO’s home) vs American English difference?  Or is that pastor from Appalachia?

  • My experience has taught me that when I read stuff by Brits and I think I see a typo, it is usually just my uncultured, colonist ignorance of real English. 🙂

    • You may be right, but having lived in England, it doesn’t jump out at me as British English. But I may just be an uncultured resident of a former colony who didn’t learn enough during his stay in England! 🙂
