You don't have to Jay. We've all seen the show.

So what, I guess we'll leave the entire southern tip of Florida as some kind of
diversity museum / adult theme park? A kind of Free Sin Zone? A place you
holier-than-thou types can go slumming for guilty pleasures before rushing home to
prayer group and absolution?

If you find something offensive, avoid it. End of story.

I'm actually with you on this one. I don't think federal tax dollars should fund
art *at all.* But let's be a little less myopic, here: the offensive thing is
tax dollars for art, period, not the nature of the art itself.

Not patronizing at all, it's a serious suggestion for folks in terminal denial
like most of the people that spout your brand of rhetoric.

Yeah? What's that?

Except that you types are a persistently annoying group of holier-than-thou
pains-in-the-ass. I don't care what the hell you believe, you can have whatever
beliefs you won't. Just don't legislate your beliefs and force me to live by
them. End of story.

You didn't have to. It is implicit but glaringly obvious in every position yahoos
like you take.

Not really.

It's not just you, it's your whole moronic "culture war" you types --- wannabe
omnipotent moral busybodies, all --- have been waging. Give it a freakin' rest.
Focus on your own family, the world will take care of itself.
