Eat this, theocrats

As a big fat secularist, I have strong doubts about whether Congress needs to declare any building a "National House of Prayer," especially when Washington National Cathedral is a sectarian house of worship, even if it does have Darth Vader on it.

But given that it has, I wonder how the theocrats feel about the National Cathedral ringing bells of joy and holding a special service in honor of the rulings that take the nation a couple shuffling steps further toward marriage equality. Most of the theocrats find SSM an abomination, think the Episcopalians at the Cathedral are heretics, and are livid at this celebration. Y'know what? That's exactly why the Founders expressly forbade national churches.
