Things I can’t imagine doing this week

Going out for a beer with a corporation.
Telling a woman that her choice of contraception is against my religion.
Bellowing “no one wants you” to a bus load of children.
Carrying an assault rifle into a department store.
Carrying an assault rifle.
Claiming that my discrimination of choice is enshrined in Christian tradition.
Rewriting the great commandments to read, “Love God, guns, and big business as yourself (never mind the neighbours)”

To what shall I compare this generation?
