Douglas Adams on Religion
"Religion ... has certain ideas at the heart of it which we call sacred or holy or whatever. What it means is, 'Here is an idea or a notion that you're not allowed to say anything bad about; you're just not. Why not? – because you're not. If someone votes for a party that you don't agree with, you're free to argue about it as much as you like; everybody will have an argument but nobody feels aggrieved by it. ... But on the other hand, if somebody says 'I mustn't move a light switch on a Saturday', you say 'I respect that.'"

-Douglas Adams

It's oddly ironic that this is what came up in google news right after I read your post. We should write a letter demanding that if Intelligent Design is going to be included in Kansas schools then the "Flat Earth" theory should get equal time.
