Michael and Me

[Sorry. Been working late all week because it took three frickin' weeks to get a new moisture form roller for the 1360 press. But here's a snapshot of banter between me and my moonbat friend Mike whom I love like a brother but sometimes.....>:]

Look at that. Re-dic-ulous!
That angel on that lampost...
What of it?
That's paid for for by our tax dollars.
What is this "our" stuff,?
Well... it's public property.
So it's an establishment of religion using public funds!
Well, it's an acknowledgement of religion...
You're not gonna go into that whole "free exercize clause" crap, are ya? 'Cuz this ain't free. This is bought and piad for by you and me.
What exactly is your problem with pretty Christmas decorations?
They offend me... as an athiest.
Why in the world do Christmas decorations offend you?
They're ramming Christianity down my frickin' throat here!
You seem to be ventilating just fine...
I should be able to walk down the dang street without being accosted by symbols of right wing fascist symbolism.
I think it's cute. The horn really makes it! Inspiring thing, i'n't it...?...
Well yer just a religious fanatic, aren't you?!
No, I'm an athiest who appreciates the value of faith.
Bah! Anyone who believes in God is an ass.
Well, what do you believe in, eh? Do you believe in good and evil?
I belive in the capability of man to do evil...
So, you believe in good and evil?
This is such black-and-white-world stuff. Life isn't black and white.
So what is it?
Gray, man. Real gray......
Sounds pretty dark gray from yer voice.
I just don't want this religious crap in my face, that's all.
Why not?
Because I don't believe in it! God! Can't I just be able to walk down the street without having other peoples' silly beliefs shoved in my face?!
No. Not in America. You're just gonna hafta deal with other peoples' beliefs if you want them to listen to yours, man.
But that crap offends me!
Because I'm an athiest!
Is today Wednesday?
Hey, Massino's Pizza has that buy-one-get-one-half-price special going!
We're so there!!!

[At least we seem to agree that sometimes it's best to leave an argument and keep your friend.] :)

Life's too short to get worked up about angels on lamp-posts.

Mmm, pizza...
