Linda Ronstadt opines on what’s wrong with the nation:
This is an election year, and I think we’re in desperate trouble and it’s time for people to speak up and not pipe down. It’s a real conflict for me when I go to a concert and find out somebody in the audience is a Republican or fundamental Christian. It can cloud my enjoyment. I’d rather not know.
Okay. She’s entitled to her opinion. It just pains me to see how many people–prominent, allegedly intelligent people–are so totally and willingly ignorant of this nation’s history.
The United States were founded by Christians on Christian principles. For a clue about what a nation built on atheism would be, Ms. Ronstadt should consider relocating to France. Or better yet, China, where I’m sure the government would appreciate her candor. But at least she wouldn’t have her enjoyment clouded.
