Yesterday morning, I was heading into the city to do a little shopping. I approached the storefront church on the block and saw a man with a stroller just standing there, watching the building. When I got closer, I saw why. As a woman supervised him, a young boy of about 5 faced the building and pissed on the wall.
Now, I’m an atheist, but even I think there are things you just don’t do, let alone teach your children to do, and that’s one of them. Churches, schools, and libraries aren’t pissoirs, dammit, although I’ll admit I might allow that post offices, police stations, bureaus of motor vehicles, and taxation agencies might be okay for that.
