The dude said he earned the right to blaspheme. He was a reverend, he said.

Vote 'no' on narcissistic propositions

In ancient Roman mythology, a beautiful youth named Narcissus spurned the love of a nymph named Echo, who consoled herself by pining away in barren glens until only her voice remained. Sounds rather like a Republican in Sacramento.
