Take Down the False Idols

The modern day idols and animal gods embrace higher platforms in the sky than the statues of the Gods of the ancients. They beam through our screens and and we scream for them to be seen, and we cry if they aren't covering the pages. We care more about Britney than the man who saved an island of a million drowning men. Eliminate these plastic idols and bloated gods that represent nothing but shame, and shame on us for allowing them to be seen in a divine manner. No man is ever to be put on a pedestal if he/she is not a prime example of the right way, has nothing to say, or simply has the money to buy a rotating banner.
