People tend to self-segregate into their preferred echo chambers. Hence the reason you can't make a pro-gun comment on HuffPo, or an pro-choice argument on FOX News, without being attacked by the general populations therein.

Humans don't need religion as an excuse to be self-centered assholes.

A non-denominational guy dies and goes to heaven. He is greeted by St. Peter, who informs the man that heaven is segregated by faith.

"Since you are a person of no denomination, we'll let you choose which group you want to spend eternity with."

The first area they walk past has one side filled with people drinking and having a good time; the other side was adorned with devices obviously meant for self torment.

"Catholics" the Saint remarked.

Saint Peter and the man continued walking past the different groups of heaven, with the man considering each one. Finally, the pair come to a massive wall, stretching as far as the eye can see in every direction.

"Who lives in there?" Asked the man.

St. Peter replied, "oh, those are the Evangelicals. They think they're the only ones here."

When you see someone sporting a Confederate battle flag, you no longer have to wonder if he's a bigot.

I fucking love it when people say ironic shit.

Bigotry - it's OK, so long as you're only bigoted against people you assume are bigots, right? Fuck proof, my opinion is as good as gold!

That's riiiight, there aren't any Neo-Nazis in Germany. How silly of me. Oh wait, the exact opposite is true.

I would be willing to argue that the swastika evokes a stronger emotional response in Germany than the confederate flag does here in the states.

Did you know that in Germany, where the swastika is banned, neo-nazi's fly the Confederate battle flag?

Thus proving that banning symbols does nothing about the ideology they symbolize.

They are called computers simply because computation is the only significant job that has so far been given to them.
