    In light of the fact that they're still molesting 'random' people* in search of contraband, I hope not.

    I've never seen it before and dont think its obnoxious, I find the other reaction, your reaction, more typical at any mention of God though. Haters gonna hate I guess. I didnt automatically connect this with christianity by the way, God gets a mention, that's all, its a shame if belief in God is exclusively associated with child molesters now, a lot of great people have done a lot of great things, sacrificed much and taken heart in difficult times because they've been motivated by a belief in God.

    Security is one major reason why people get fucked up. If you show trust, people behave to show that they are worthy of the trust more and definitely wont go into extremes that easily, but if you suspect everyone, more people will start to act like according to what you suspect them of. Isnt this common knowledge in USA or wtf is wrong with everyone there?
