Patrick Stewart, Patriot
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" It's so easy to worship by the One God Model. Why, just think about what a snap it is for your kids to pick out a headstone for your grave! "Yeah, that one with the cross will be great." Or, "Please put a Star of David on the memorial." Zip zip zip. Done!
Patrick Stewart's widow didn't have such an easy time as that. Pfc. Stewart, killed in the U.S. Invasion of Iraq, worshipped the bored gods. To whit, he was a Wiccan. His widow had to fight red tape for a year to get the Pentagram, holy symbol of the Wiccan faith, placed on his memorial in a Nevada national cemetery. She has finally won. The symbol will be affixed.
All hail patriot Patrick Stewart and the faith he followed to his untimely death! And blessed be a country that recognizes freedom of religion and separation of church and state as fundamental building blocks for a healthy republic!

Yesterday I entered into a wager on the outcome of the University of Maryland-University of West Virginia football contest. if Maryland lost, I had to say something nice about George W. Bush. You can read my assessment of Fearless Leader here.
After I posted my kind remarks about the president, I found a fabulous new post at R U Rapture Ready, a blog that the bored gods will not let me link to directly. We at "The Gods Are Bored" strive to bring you laughter every day, but we'd be hard pressed to outdo the stunning Mr. Alberto Trippe. He's making the case for being Left Behind pretty much airtight.
