religion exception

This made me laugh:

Now the Vatican says that nuns are too interested in “the social Gospel” (which is the Gospel), when they should be more interested in Gospel teachings about abortion and contraception (which do not exist).

I was trying to explain to someone that I go to an evangelical church. I always find this hard to say without expecting I will immediately need to perform an exorcism; whomever I'm addressing invariably starts spitting as his/her eyes roll back in his/her head. I feel more comfortable saying our church is Charismatic and when they ask what that means I say, "You know, snake handlers and stuff. It's a good time. You should come by!"

But seriously, religious people, stop hurting America.
