last post of the day, I promise, really

Mostly for Emma, who adores the actor who introduces The Byrds-Turn!/Rhymney/Tambourine Man-10/19/65:

And there's a thoughtful post that applies to more than congregations at How to disestablish your congregation. I particularly liked "We religious liberals are so far out of the establishment that the majority of U.S. residents don’t even know who we are. This is why so many people in the U.S. believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim — he’s actually a religious liberal (of the mainline Protestant variety), but more U.S. residents know what Islam is than know what liberal religion is, so since Obama is not a born-again Christian they assume he’s a Muslim. As for you, they probably think you belong to a cult."
