A popular — rather, prolific — sign at the Reason Rally read: “God Hates Bags.”
Upon arriving at the National Mall, we overheard someone explaining that sign, meekly saying they couldn’t get away with writing the word that rhymes with “bags,” blah, blah, blah.
Well, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, as I wasn’t sure where they were coming from or who was mocking whom. We are so trained to try to put people with signs in boxes before deciding what to think.
One of the speakers saved me the trouble, giving it the right context: “I see there’s a typo on your sign. Should say: ‘God Hates Facts.’ ”
(And I have removed the entertainment I’d posted here previously, because it seems a certain madcap genius is also litigious. Sorry, Tim Minchin fans. )
