[angers] me . . . when I see people hustling that other kind of knee-jerk belief — all rules and conformity and non-freedom — exemplified by some of the TV evangelists and David Dukes of the world, spouting off this stuff that they claim is Christianity. I hate the idea that people might actually think this is what it’s all about. Their message is so anti-love.”
