An atheist quoting Karl Marx.

Boy, do I hate to feed that stereotype, since there’s not much economically in which I agree with Marx.  Plus, I hate giving fundamentalists who have no appreciation for nuance more fuel for their atheists-are-all-communist-socialist-Marx-Nazi-evil-people” fire.  But Michaelyn is having to read his work for a Western Civ course and reminded me of this quote, which is spot on the money.

“To abolish religion as the illusory happiness of the people is to demand their real happiness.”

Damn, Marx.  Get it.

A couple Christian county clerks who get it.
Every clerk in Decatur County, TN resigns over same-sex marriage ruling.
How the Baxter County nativity lawsuit is probably going to play out.
Credit where it's due: good job Episcopal Church.
