It's your life. It's now or never. You're not going to live forever. You just wanna live while you're alive

we have two sides

one side wants to live inside the world
and the other wants to live inside stories

choosing one pretty much does away with the other
the interlopers, have chosen one side they are are not fully comfortable with

How about living, through stories, in the world? Huh? Don't take stories away from me! We are an animal that makes stories.

(And I ain't necessarily limiting this to religion)

I didn't think one could fit this much stupidity in a single article

Louisiana creationism video: State Sen. Elbert Guillory defends faith healing. - Slate Magazine

Witch doctors. E Coli evolving into people. If I were writing a story about idiot creationists, there's no way I could create characters like this without thinking I was setting up easy targets

I went to see Book of Mormon again a couple weeks ago. There was a Mormon guy out front handing out books. I think I secretly love Mormons

It's a very unique, even endearing at times, culture. That's one of the reasons so many people get massively depressed when they start finding out a lot of the truth of the church's history, early doctrines, etc. Most all ex-believers had some aspects of it they really loved and connected with.

Well, you can at least take some comfort in the fact that Mormonism isn't any more made up than any other religion on the planet. It just doesn't have the veil of time to hide behind. Any you can be somewhat proud that they decided being really nice to everybody was a good quality to promote while they were at it. Their initial response to The Book of Mormon musical was to buy ad space in the Playbill magazine. I can think of at least one other religion whose response wouldn't have been nearly as non violent (or as charming)

Polite, maybe, which is different from genuine kindness.

You'd be wrong to assume all religions are equally harmful, however. At the very least, this guy wasn't buried up to his neck before having his brains bashed in with rocks and concrete
