Reminds me of a Bill Hicks bit:
Redneck: "HEY! MR. FUNNY MAN! we're Christians and we didn't like what you said making jokes about Christianity."
Hicks: "well, then forgive me."
btw, I'm a Christian*, and I support this message. I don't like to force my beliefs on anyone. That is to say, I don't condone religious rape.
*but I also think that the Life of Brian is one of the greatest films ever. And I don't go to church, and I don't cut my hair. And I could (or couldn't) really care less if anyone anywhere is either gay or married, or even gay married. I'm not. Though I may be one of those things one day. Plus, I can go to the movies and see it all there. But no, I rarely ever wish I had a pencil thin mustache.
