"Talking nonsense is the sole privilege mankind possesses over the other organisms."
Or, more precisely, the problem of Christianists in the US armed forces. A good read, especially if you have not been made aware of this worrisome trend.
Great piece. When I was in the army back in the '50s we had the choice of protestant or catholic and no others not even Jewish. At the end of this piece there is a link to Hitchens roast of Gore Vidal which is both very sad and Hitch at his acerbic best.
Heh. As it happens, I came across the piece I linked to in my post because someone had referred me to the Vidal piece, and I saw the military story link there.I completely agree with your assessment about the Vidal piece. Don't we have a spare pasture out to which we can put poor Gore?
