the mistake

I made the mistake of trying to discuss a topic with religious fanatics today.  There's a reason why you shouldn't do that.  I have to laugh though when the intolerant wonder why the tolerant are intolerant of them.  That's because if someone who is tolerant actually tolerates the intolerant, then trouble ensues.  We have the intolerant then thinking they can take over because the tolerant will just sit back and not do anything.  We, the tolerant, have an obligation to be intolerant of intolerance.  We also have an obligation to attempt to reduce the ignorance of those who are intolerant.

Father Sun, Mother Earth

Father Sun is nudging Mother Earth awake;
when Mother Earth awakens, she will shake herself
as a dog shakes off water;
God will blink;
and Humans will become a bad dream.
