We should have let them secede

The Georgia legislature passed a bill this week that creates state-funded Bible classes in Georgia public schools. The bill requires that the Bible serve as the core textbook for these new courses. Groups like Defcon America are taking to the barricades and the airwaves to try to prevent this bill from being signed by the governer.

I say, forget it. Let him sign. We should raise money to allow sensible Georgians to relocate to other parts of the country, where their taxes don't pay to support a religion. We could use some of the money to help the hard core fundamentalists move to Iran or Afghanistan, where most people share their values. Oh, I know, the Christian extremists and the Islamic extremists make a big deal about hating each other, but once they get to know each other, they will realize how much they have in common.
