114. Holy Cow

 

I just thought it was a clever phrase to use as an analogy, especially to my RW religious friends who voted for Trump and want smaller government. It seemed like a point they could understand and be left without a response.

I certainly didn't expect this reaction from some of our DUers. I'm an Atheist. I have read the Bible numerous times for its historical content and to argue points of hypocrisy with right wingers.

This phrase never hit me as bigoted, any more than "Voodoo Economics" or "Witch Hunt" is a bigoted statement.
