The entire God'n'Guns subculture in America is a obnoxious brew.

These nuts blame the separation of church/state on everything. The American people have shown by their votes that they do not want a Theocracy.

The entire God'n'Guns subculture in America is a obnoxious brew.

And when Obama made a few observations about the "bitter clingers", while mustering a lot more sympathy for them than I could have, the howls of wingnut outrage probably made it all the way to Alpha Centauri.

The simple truth of the matter is that there _are_ lots of people who cling bitterly to god and guns, mostly for lack of anything better to do with themselves in US society.

Yeah because before forced school prayer was banned, there was no violence at all. Seriously, forcing kids to pray isn't going to solve violence. To act like this is the problem and to totally dismiss guns as a problem takes some mental gymnastics of the highest level.

Apologies, don't recall where I first saw this ..

Anyone who believes there is no prayer in school has obviously never been watching the students when the teacher announced a pop quiz.

Constant public prayer and piety worked so well to prevent random acts of violence back in the Middle Ages.

That, along with burning at the stake, drawing and quartering, breaking on the wheel, and mass public hangings.

A slightly simpler version:

As long as there are pop quizzes, there will be prayer in school.

I can't help but hate god and guns even more now for being child killers.
