I love trolls. Probably because we get so few of them…they kind of drop through the ether on their way down to some place they deserve…
One showed up a little while ago in an old Fjordman post. I won’t bother linking to it. However, just in case you didn’t know, this person of wisdom has decided that we are “…racist claptrap. Nothing more than that…”
Obviously, this person knows I’m a sucker for a reasoned argument. And sure enough, the commenter elaborates with a stern rhetorical question:
Have you been paying attention to what the Bush administration has been doing and the theocracy the US is turning into?
Yes, I have noticed that. All the praying that goes on in schools, the way the Patriot Act calls for burning of atheists at the stake (good, clean fun, that), and particularly the mandatory church attendance, especially for Muslims.
Yes, sir…I surely do admire Emperor Bush’s diktats. My only complaint is that he hasn’t issued more of them.
Better be careful, you agnostics. I took a peek, and you’re next on the list.
If you non-believers and pagans would like a quick disguise, out of the kindness of my Christian heart I have some rosary beads I can sell you. Real cheap – even less if you buy a gross of them. All guaranteed to contain pieces of the original cross from Calvary.
I have holy water, quarts and gallons of the original water-turned-into-wine. Unfortunately, they stale-dated and turned back into H2O, but they’re the real thing – you can get a whiff of ancient vinegar when you open them. But hurry, only a few containers remain.
My best offer, though is genuine statues of Saint Dymphna. Real cheap. Being the patron saint of lunatics, she should suit the fear mongers who think the US is one theocracy, under Bush, with quibbling credos for all.
