In a civilized country…where denying equal human rights from others is recognized as abusive and oppressive…cruel religious fundamentalists try to circumvent common decency…and the direct instructions of their god, to “do unto others as they would like others to do unto them”…that is, a divine commandment to afford others the same equal rights that they wish to enjoy themselves…and instead claim a pretext of “religious freedom” in order to oppress and abuse others…when that action is the diametrically opposite action than what their god required of them, in writing…!

See, the preacher encourages your capacity for illusion. Then he tells you it’s a fucking virtue.
"Surely this is all for me… Me? Me, me, me. I. I. I’m so fucking important. I’m so fucking important, then, right?"
