houses of worship

I oppose solemnity in churches. In the same way, I oppose the pomp and circumstance and obsequious applause attendant to speeches by presidents.

I guess that's nothing new. Churches remind me of a Mitch Hedberg joke:

I was reading a magazine at the 7-Eleven and the clerk said, "Hey man, this isn't a library."
I said, "OK, I'll talk louder."
