Burn the Books!

“The language and thought police are hardly some Orwellian invention; America has been unusually susceptible to plagues of Comstockery and self-righteous tomfoolery.” Jon Newlin; Well, Shut My Mouth; Times-Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana); Oct 13, 1996.

    Ain’t that the truth. How many times have some people thought it was okay to tell me dirty jokes, or ALL about their date that weekend, or their big-beer-bash, but thought I was bad for inviting them to Church.

  2. The Wombat Says:

    Book burning and a holier than thou attitude – “I know what is right for everyone” is most annoying.

    If someone makes it clear that x-rated jokes are not welcome, than only the boor and idiot press on.

    While I might not go, I would very much appreciate the invitation to got to someone’s church.

    Manners and good taste does seem to be in missing all too often.
