Smooth criminals and secret knowledge

I wasn’t surprised that a surprising percentage of the Harvey Milk School for Gays or whatever it’s called have turned out to be rather less than law-abiding. If you reject both Judeo-Christian morality and societal norms, what are the chances that you’re going to have a significant respect for the law? It’s not impossible, but it is rather less likely.

I couldn’t help but notice that the Texas journalist who quoted my statement of homosexuality as an “Apollonian death cult” omitted the “Apollonian” bit. Apparently he wasn’t too eager to bring Camille Paglia into the discussion, – if he even understood what I was saying – but simply wanted to make my position look as extreme as possible. I’m not complaining, as it was a fair rhetorical device on his part, but for those of you who wanted to know why I never responded to his piece, it’s because I very seldom bother responding to rhetorical sound-bite slingers.

I’m working on next week’s column now, so I’ll get to the two best atheist critiques of last week’s piece either tomorrow or the weekend. Good stuff, for the most part, especially the guy who picked up my little Classics cheat. He didn’t understand why it was there, but he definitely noticed it. I’d thought it was fairly obvious, but apparently not.

If you’ve noticed there are often little things in various columns that seem somewhat odd, remember two things. 1. I’m a game designer. 2. According to Space Bunny, I have a strange sense of humor.
