[A photo of a statue of Mary holding the baby Jesus. Most of the statue is made of white stone in the classic Roman style, but the head of the baby Jesus is in bright orange, crudely sculpted clay - the style and proportions are wildly mismatched. Also, the head is deformed by melting in the rain, and orange stains are running down the front.]

Jesus Christ, what the hell is that thing?

    We Need Secularism. Of course we do.
    Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t?

    Religious nonsense seems to be one thing that democracy is ill equipped to combat. Proselytising for acquiring paradise and avoiding damnation is very lucrative business. Accusing people of foolish delusions: not so lucrative.

    If it wasn’t for the continual barrage of human atrocities, the transition to rationality would probably be even slower. Those of us who transitioned to atheism, out of nothing more than a mature sense of what is known, are sympathetic to crisis converts but, at the same time, it is difficult to relate to their anxiety and their desolation.

    I guess we had less to loose and less to fear. Death still awaits us, that is true. That’s the price we pay for knowing things.
