"Whoops, typo. I meant "godliness", not "godlessness". My fingers are betraying my brain."

"Thanks, Felaine, for reminding me that Steve Benson co-wrote the lyrics. That song is a stepping stone, a transition: we should be able to simply affirm and celebrate our positive values, letting the crap we've put aside be forgotten."

"No storm clouds here? Think GOP racism, GOP xian dominionism. A land that's free? Think NSA, police racism, militarized police. Atheists keep keep a low profile? "No, no, a thousand times No! "
