And that's from people who actually sat down and tried to reason out a counter-argument. Your average wingnut just dismisses it as "irrelevant" and continues to misquote Patrick Henry and claim our laws come from the Ten Commandments ("But if that were true, why isn't blasphemy illegal?" "It is!" "No, it really isn't." "Well, it should be.")

As my father likes to say about liberals and secularists, but which applies better to himself: "Don't confuse me with the facts, I know how I feel about it."
