Suddenly South wins Spotty!

Here is just a taste of a post the purports to be about Mormons, but is really about the role of all religion in government:

If someone ran for office and this person strongly believed that a hamster from Peru was the Creator of the Universe, I would vote for the man if his views on this, that, or the other closely mirrored mine and he could express these views in a rational secular manner reasonably void of code words and the weighted language of hamster history. I would not vote for this man if, in an attempt to justify his positions, he appealed to the higher authority of the Peruvian hamster as the sole source or pillar of his beliefs. As someone who does not recognize the rodent deity, and in a world so far removed from the hamster holy books of yesteryear, I would think it necessary to call into question the process by which he arrived at the position he is currently peddling.

Remember, boys and girls, a Spotty™ is awarded to the author of a letter to the editor, an op-ed piece, or a blog post or comment that Spot wishes that he had written. In keeping with the policy here at the Cucking Stool, by virtue of its Spotty™ win, Suddenly South also earns a spot on the blogroll.
