I got carried away on my rant about blasphemy being illegal in the U.S. until 1952 and got cut off by the producer before I could blaspheme the Holy Spirit on the Beeb!
Oh, well. The Frenchman says it’s better to be respectful, and that I sounded great. I’ll take his word for it.
Otherwise, the show went really well. I’m super pleased with how it all turned out. And I’m extra happy that they got Paul the British guy whose blasphemy video I like so much to talk on the show. He was terrific. The reverend who spoke had some good points about how evangelical Christians in the U.S. have created an adversarial atmosphere. It’s totally true. While I know individual Christians who are in themselves wonderful and decent people, it’s still been an enormous battle to remove the influence of religion from politics and scientific inquiry thanks to the influence of organized Christianity. And that’s a problem.
Alright, time to snuggle down with The Frenchman for a DVD. This soldier has done her duty for the day.
