... and maybe some anti-hypertensives.
Ok, well I don't actually drink.. so scratch that.
I got home from the night shift, and was reading my local paper. The letters to the Editor are always interesting. This morning, however, there was a huge (1/2 page) letter all about how Atheists think they are Gods, and are afraid to be accountable for their actions in front of the "divine presence". It went on to say how selfish we are and how stupid we are as well!
I wrote a response... then rewrote it with all the naughty words edited... and after two or three rewrites, hopefully came up with something that can be printed in a public newspaper.
The thing I am waiting to see, is will they print my letter unchanged? They have a policy of only printing letters that are under 250 words, and say that they edit for taste/accuracy, but the letter I responded to was more like a 2000 word essay, and was quite nasty.
Shortly after I sent it.. I suddenly realized that I actually have not told many friends, family and coworkers that I am actually Atheist... I guess they are going to know soon enough!!
I may need some counseling once this thing is published..
