Jesus Thinks He's a Jerk

You know sometimes when people in other countries point to some American act - nothing hideous, mind you, just us throwing our weight around - as an example of "why they hate us?" Well, domestically, this kind of thing makes me hate born-again fundamentalist Christians. It seems that an American Airlines pilot asked the Christian passengers on his transcontinental flight to speak with other passengers "about their relationship with God." Those other passengers, who dared not identify themselves as Christian, were "crazy," according to the pilot. What an asshole.

I don't have a problem with anyone's particular religious belief, silly as it may be. But this urge of evangelical Christians to "share" their "faith" with the rest of us goes too far. At least while you're trapped on a transcontinental flight with one.
