Plumbing & Prose: Flushing Scripture

Lindsay points out the Rude Pundit says it's a
"Goddamn shame you put so much belief into a replaceable inanimate object."
He's right, while it is rude, inappropriate, & unnecessarily incendiary to go out of your way to trash a religious or patriotic symbol, it's a bit much to go all ape-shit because someone else doesn't treat symbols of your personal beliefs with the degree of respect you think necessarily. The real issue at Gitmo is the (mis)treatment of detainees.
