Survey: Americans view Jews, Christians warmly →

Religious tribalism by the numbers. Of course, the lowest score was:

This doesn’t even need a caption. It’s pretty self-explanatory.

Yeah, it doesn’t need a caption, it perfectly exemplifies how Christianity uses the same tactics as creepy child abusers and are, in fact, creepy and abusive toward children. They foster an odd sort of dependence and arbitrarily reward obedience.By the way, dumb fuck, a bigger bear is not a better bear. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with children and psychology (or basic human emotion) can tell you if she loves that bear, she’s not gonna love some other bear just because it’s bigger. She’s invested her emotions in that small bear. She’s experimenting with caring for something, this is something all children do. What lesson does it teach to give away her baby for a bigger baby? When she’s a bit older will she trade a three-legged dog for a four legged one? When she’s a teen will she dump her date for a taller one? If she becomes a mother will she throw out her baby for a healthier one?

This has been another episode of “Conservatives Actually Know Fuck-All About the Constitution.”

Chief. Justice.

The first half of this is true whether you’re a Buddhist or not. The second part is like the petulant whines of a child making up the rules as he goes along.
