Sometimes it’s the writing and not the art that catches you

As I’ve written before, I love me some Jesus and Mo.

Here’s a gorgeous gem of rational thought from the (unseen) barmaid from the Cock and Bull Tavern. She always seems to get stuck serving them, and gets a good shot at them occasionally:

“The problem is that the premises upon which you base your world-view–namely that there exists a “holy book” inspired by God–are not only unjustified, but they have a retarding effect on your ethical thinking.

“Ancient prejudice and superstitions are elevated to the status of universal moral truths–which, by definition, must be applied universally, otherwise God is being defied.

“So you feel obliged to interfere with society’s naturally evolving sense of morality despite the fact that your dubious premises mean that you are poorly qualified to do so.”

    I rage at a comment they make in the previous episode:

    “It is not enough that we are willing to suffer for our beliefs, barmaid.”
    “We must make sure that everyone else suffers for them, too.”
