Saturday Big Blue Smurf Blogging: What They Said
Posted by Jill | 7:00 PM
Today's honoree: John Cole, who cuts through the bullshit like no one else can, especially where this alternate reality in which we find ourselves is one where all of a sudden the practice of contraception is something that is a subject for national debate.

Money quote:
When did the 1st Amendment change from basically saying that you can practice whatever religion you want and you won’t be burned at the state as a heretic and we’re not going to form or recognize a national religion like the Church of England? When did it change to “everyone everywhere has to do what a bunch of old catholics in funny hats wants, because otherwise it hurts their feelings?” And why does it only apply to certain religions?

If the state won't do as religion demands, it's a War on Religion. If a religion won't do as the state demands, it's Freedom. It's all pretty simple and logical.
