yeah .. that's why i don't pay my taxes either :)
but seriously .. i'm guessing it's understandable that some might be overly sensitive particularly if you've been thwacked too often or abused with out of context biblical references .. in a similar vein - i'm guessing that any sort of "open kimono" or "money shot" references might be equally offensive to people who may have been sexually abused
perhaps an entropy analogy would be more appropriate here since it's generally benign and science is generally the more widely accepted school of religious thought that nobody will complain too much about
(let's see if i've covered all the bases .. government/politics - check .. religion -check .. sex - check .. ok - my work here is done)
