Let's keep swallowing that camel

Prolonging the reign of absurd laws to uphold the mantra of gun rights exists only in America and requires the blood of the innocent and the most vulnerable. When five persons are hospitalized in the Southwest with e coli found in spinach, the government immediately shuts down the entire spinach industry, putting it under surveillance 24/7 and quarantining suspected farms. When more than 30,000 Americans die by gun fire, Congress reacts to protect guns, along with their institutions, factories, distribution systems, and private sellers which only guarantees there will be more human sacrifices in the days to come.—America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose, pages 132–33

Isn't that a bit weird? You can sue toy manufacturers, but not gun manufacturers. That's just weird! You can shut down an entire agricultural industry and recall (and destroy!) the entire crop because a few people got sick. But, you can't require a recall of fact, to suggest such a thing is considered un-American and insane.

But that's not idolatry, is it?
