ANDERSON COOPER SAID MY NAME ON THE AIR!
And I can PROVE it:
Okay, he was reading comments from the 360 blog, but that one was mine and he even pronounced Arachnae right.
The subject I was responding to was the exorcist casting demons out of people in Oklahoma and my comment in full was:
Whatever next? burning heretics at the stake?Edited for space, I guess, heh. Still. Anderson Cooper. Said. My. Name...
You know, there's a time and place for being respectful of the beliefs of others, and there's ALSO a time and place for being alarmed as the nation spirals further and further down into Middle Ages beliefs, distrust of science and apocalyptic yearnings.
We all watch in alarm as Afghanistan plans to execute a guy for converting to Christianity, and yet in our own country, there are people who would, if they could, disqualify you for a job or a loan or an adoption because you're NOT a Christian.
I can't be the only one to find it ironic that we're fighting Islamic fundamentalism abroad while ignoring the very real dangers of Christian fundamentalism at home.
