Now if we could just find some religious group to target. Hey we could call up a national police force and give them brown shirts! And have camps where the people we round up (to give us a national scapegoat to focus on) where they could learn to think clearly unclouded by their silly religiousity. I KNOW WE CAN CALL THEM CONCENTRATION CAMPS! So they can learn to concentrate.. or something. Oh no that's been done before... rats.

This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this poses some interesting questions!
