Since wingnuts are fond of using anecdotal evidence as proof that all liberals are big meanie poo-poo heads, I thought I would offer up another anecdote for them to use in conjunction with the one* they’re already gay-aborting the life out of.
Here’s what happened: My mother-in-law, who is a fairly devout Catholic–also about as awesome MIL a person could hope to have–she’s lovely**–, gave me a manger scene ornament carved out of olive wood to celebrate the birth of my son. I took the ornament, threw it at her face, and screamed “DON’T YOU KNOW I’M AN ATHEIST, YOU STUPID COW?!” Then I placed it on the floor and took a dump on it.
OK, that’s not exactly what happened. Here’s what really happened: I smiled at her, thanked her for it, asked about the significance olive wood, and later hung it on my Christmas tree.
Oh, wait. This story won’t be good for the ‘nutters to use AT ALL. Oh dear.
*BTW, taking a 20-week-old fetus home to your children is weird and possibly traumatizing for the Jr. Frothy Mixtures.
**She also knows I am not a person of faith and is respectful of that
