From Rall.com, stolen in it's entirety. This is brilliant and brutal and all of the things that swirl in my brain that I can't even come close to expressing in my own words.

I just returned from the company Christmas party. Not a holiday party. A Christmas party. Because I work for a Christian company. The owners are lovely people, rife with sincere beliefs and the evangelical/fundamental flavor of religion. It's their money and they can celebrate how they want to celebrate. If Paris was worth a mass for Henry IV, steak dinner, entertainment and gifts are worth an amen for this heathen. I do admire that they try to bring Christian principles into all facets of their lives. In many ways they do strive to be good. They just espouse so many ideas that I cannot abide. It would be fine if these ideas would only apply to them. I don't have a problem with them voicing these ideas. However, these ideas have found their way into the political discourse of this country and are swung like a cudgel by the powerful to harm a great many of my fellow 'Murkuns. White, heterosexual, Christian, property-owning males would hold dominion over all of us unworthy lesser persons if the things they believe hold sway.
I refuse to remove the Obama '08 magnet from the back of my car. It's a nice reminder to everyone I work with that there is a dirty, librul, muslin, socialist, fascist, communist among them.
