Joe Bob Briggs: “Spiritual But Not Religious, Just Inane”

Joe Bob Briggs writes:

So now we know what “spiritual” means. It means:

(1) Alone.
(2) Me.
(3) Making myself feel good.
(4) Not bothering with the messy business of screwed-up disagreeable people who show up at church and make you listen to their problems and ignore your own.
(5) Sociology class.

There’s a word for this. It’s a perfectly good word, tested by centuries of use. The word is “atheist.” Please use it. Then we won’t think you’re so weird.
