Yes dad.

I imagine a leader who recognised the need not to confuse their faith  
with their job would be a good start. Yeah, there's always the  
concern that god's going to punch through the membrane and they'll go  
all crazy - you get that with crypto god-botherers - but I assume  
it's preferable to being governed by someone who believes they're  
god's lieutenant in monkeyworld.

Does anyone have an adaptor for the logic Lion's using? I can't plug  
it in here.

They're hearing this from impartial sources are they?
