I wish I could do the same with religion, which I view as a personal matter not well suited for public displays. But public displays and declarations abound.
- Controversy continues over the "Keep Christ in Christmas" sign in Pitman, N.J. I guess the locals forget that those who don't celebrate Christmas might not want to live under the banner of someone else's religion.
- This season of Survivor: South Pacific was the most prayerful ever -- as if who would win immunity was a matter of divine intervention.
- Then there's the Denver Bronco's Tim Tebow, whose kneeling in prayer on the playing field has become a phenomenon. The best response to "tebowing" is this skit from Saturday Night Live (after brief ad).
So when it comes to politics or religion, I really don't have to say anything at all. There are enough voices in the mix as it is.
