Kathy Griffin

If you're at all caught up in the silly controversy that's risen since Ms. Griffin accepted her Emmy the other night, you really have to read this. It's chock full of good stuff, all the way through the comments.
[W]e Americans have way too much faux moral outrage. I mean, c'mon, you believe that the Creator of all time, space, physics, and energy, who went to the trouble of engineering a Big Bang and shepherded tens of billions of years worth of cosmic thermonuclear reactions in order to create a life sustaining planet upon which He could create bodies to house souls and send His son to death by torture so you could go to Heaven forever even though you're a sinner by virtue of a fraud perpetrated by [a] talking snake who offered a magical apple to a rib-woman, and you want to base our nation upon those principles and overturn 231 years of secular Constitutional rule, and YOU'RE offended by a D-list comedian saying "suck it, Jesus"?

Gee, I kinda thought that when an omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, infinite sky wizard has your back, a silly comedic remark would be a tiny concern not even worthy of note.
By the way, do I really need to point out that this woman is a comedian?!? Why is she being taken so seriously?
