Random Quote #53 topic: atheism, Wayne Aiken's atheism cookie file

"Oh great, but not necessarily superior, being who dwells beyond this plane of
existence and who is accessible only through prayer, meditation, or crystals,
we salute you without thereby acknowledging that you are entitled to greater
respect than that accorded any other endangered species. We hope to pass
through your plane of existence at some point on our psychic journey to the
same exalted status as marine mammals or even snail darters. Moreover, to the
extent your design for the universe coincides with the U.S. Constitution and
includes low-cost access to cable, we ask you to provide us our minimum daily
requirement of essential vitamins and nutrients consistent with FDA
guidelines, and when judging us be duly mindful or our status as victim, which
provides full justification for what might appear on superficial examination
to be felonious. In the same vein, we will endeavor to excuse and forgive those
who have transgressed against us, with the possible exception of our parents,
teachers, policemen and clergy about whom we have just resurrected disturbing
memories. We ask all this in the name of your prophet --------. (Here on
alternating weeks substitute names drawn from the consensus of the class. Some
suggestions for early in the year: L. Ron Hubbard, Ayatollah Khomeini,
Patricia Ireland, Mike Wallace.)"
[John F. Bramfeld, a lawyer in Urbana, Ill., as printed in "Wall
Street Journal" Pg A-18 Thurs, Jan 12, 1995, contemplating what
would happen to school prayer after it was filtered through the
apparatus of politically correct educrats.]
