When I was a Christian, I believed that a god created everything – including money, even including evil itself. ‘Scumbag god’ needed to take a break from creating things for a minute.

I’m also reminded of the time when I was attacked by a long drive-by comment I refer to as “But maybe you don’t embrace capitalism like I do” (FYI – that was written after our first attempt for the RBB festival was crippled at the last minute, but before we resubmitted with a virtually identical festival that later was approved.)

    Funny how capitalism is something you have to believe in. Like a religion.
