porpentine on Religion is a great way for people with mental illness to seem normal.: Think of the other images that would follow. Congregations kneeling and praying in front of a giant M-16. Priests and nuns and all manner of godbotherers wearing tiny M-16s around their necks. Bowing and genuflecting before the M-16; blessing and comforting with the sacred M-16. Churches built in the shape of an M-16; television evangelists building swimming pools in the shape of an M-16. Etc...
