Thanks for the feedback, Peg.

More Catholic commenters.  Peg is displeased with my article about the KC Atheists getting barred from the St. Patty’s Day parade.

Well, to be annoying, that would “pedantic.”
And the notion that a bunch of heathens adopt my cultural heritage observation day to drink green beer, get drunk, and wear green is offensive to my sensibilities.

Do you presume to speak for everybody of Irish heritage?  I only ask because a lot of them use the day as an excuse to drink beer, get drunk, and to wear green.  If that’s offensive to your sensibilities, then you are perfectly free to celebrate the day by staying sober, watching Judge Judy, and wearing pastel pink.  No atheist will give a shit.

But the way we live our lives does not revolve around looking out for Peg’s sensibilities.  You are, of course, entitled to your sensibilities, but you’re a bit daft if you think your sensibilities should govern my life.
