No Reason

To post this quote. Really. It doesn't apply at all to the current state of the country or the world.

Whoever imagines himself a favorite with God holds others in contempt.
-Robert Green Ingersoll, lawyer and orator (1833-1899)

Incidentally, Ingersoll was a prominent atheist who made quite a name for himself by trooping around Gilded Age America and denouncing religion. Biographies and quotes here and here. I especially like this one: "Blasphemy is an epithet bestowed by superstition upon common sense."
