I Say We Steal A Play From The Other Side's Playbook...

And blame the increase in violent crime on the expanded role of religion in public life.

Or maybe on the teaching of creationism in schools...

And why not blame it on religion? These days, when someone looks to God (no matter what god they follow) it's usually to see which people their diety wants them to kill. I'm so glad I live in a mostly a-religious country where churches are going out of business. Most people here don't give a rat's arse about religion, mate. And you know what? Our crime rate is low!

Need any half-assed philosophers down under? Sounds like my kinda place.

(Incidentally, Australia has produced several good contemporary philosophers.)

Now, now, WS, we can't go all lunatic fringey, can we? Yeah, I know you're just kidding, but it is tempting, isn't it?
