How a lot of brains need to be rebooted:

[A "Blue Screen Of Death" with the following text] A problem has been detected and your religious privileges have been shut down to prevent damage to humanity. / RELIGIOUS_PRIV_NOT_EQUAL_FAIR_SOCIETY / If this is the first time you've seen this militant secularist screen, restart your thought processes, if this screen appears again, follow these steps: / Check to make sure any indoctrinated irrational beliefs have been properly uninstalled. If these are newly acquired irrational beliefs, ask your religious provider if they have any updates they could install that would give them a less divisive ideology. / If delusions continue, disable or remove government education policies that encourage the segregation of children based on the espoused religion of their parents. Disable sexual neurosis doctrines in the BIOS memory options. De-install the expectation of special privileges associated with the adherence to an obsolete belief system, restart your thought processes and select critical thinking mode. / Technical information / *** STOP: ([shadowed white Latin cross, Celtic cross, Star of David, moon and crescent, yin yang, Om, eightfold path wheel, bomb, skull and crossbones]) *** / Beginning dump of illogical memory / Illogical memory dump complete. / Contact your secularist or humanist support group for further assistance.(click to embiggen)

I don't know the creator of this. H/T to Disqus commenter Doug105 who posted this at Friendly Atheist.
