John Shore Explains The Religious Right: ‘When evil is serious, it reaches for a Bible and cross’
John Shore is in a bad mood because it looks like North Carolina’s Constitutional Amendment One that declares marriage to be bla bla bla we hate fags is going to pass. Can you blame him? Or disagree with the following?
What better disguise for evil than Jesus Christ? It’s not like evil is ever going to show up as itself; it knows doing so will guarantee no one asks it to dance. Before beginning its rounds, evil always takes care to wrap itself in the warm, soft cloak of humble piety, sincere compassion, utmost concern.
And when it has serious work to do—when it’s on a mission, and will not be satisfied until blood is on the ground—evil knows that, on its way out the door, it cannot go wrong grabbing a Bible and a cross.
