Of course the Christian Right shit a collective pickle over it, speaking in tongues about how you ought to be horsewhipped if you aren't filled with the love of Christ. And Kathryn Jean Lopez took predictable umbrage at the line as well. And then she went the predictable extra step of trying to shoehorn her personal religious views into the source code of this nation:
"We’re a nation not just where you are free to believe or not to believe; we’re a nation founded for Him — so we could praise Him, so we could do His will."Wrong, Kathryn. Have another can of frosting.
