Of Religious Intolerance, House Music and Jobs to Kentucky

So he takes the low road and attacks Governor Beshear for participating in a Hindu ceremony.
Beshear was doing his job by sitting with the folks at Flex Films. David Williams has merely demonstrated that he has a lot of growing up to do. To loop back into that conversation I had with my friend the other day, I suggested that one of the hallmarks of atheism is that we can appreciate and even participate in a religious ceremony without having to worry about whether or not our non-believer status will be contaminated or not. If the message is a positive one, I don't have any problem with it.
If I were to restrict my habits to avoid anything of a religious nature, then how would I ever be able to enjoy Bach's "St. Matthew's Passion" or melt to the beauty of the words in the Song of Songs?
I find it easy to ridicule Senate President Williams over this but I find it even simpler to pity the man and his closed-mindedness. There is so much richness in this world of which he's depriving himself.
