Comment of the Day: You're Too Sensitive About Religion
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We recently brought you up to date on guru Prakashanand Saraswati, charged with molesting young girls. In the course of doing so, we talked about Krishnu in a way that offended some people, one of whom advised us to call a Hindu temple for more information.
That didn't sit well with another reader.
Utterly ridiculous, this sensitivity toward religion. Pick up a phone and call a temple to get the low down about Lord Krishnu. Yeah right, and you could call Jimmy Swaggert to learn that Job was swallowed by a whale; or call a priest to learn that a virgin bore a god, and also the son of god himself, who was crucified, died, then came back to life and rose, whole body up into the sky.
Religion deserves ridicule from any right thinking person; not respect and sensitivity.
