Religion sneaks into science classes, marries politics, and guides formulation of laws. Adherents bombard their beliefs upon others in many ways (gods in constitutions, gods on currency, gods in anthems, swearing on bibles, and crosses on motorways), protect pedophiles, are anti-homosexual, cause third-world conflicts, condemn condoms, and promote misogyny. Such evil must stop.

In the beginning (the late 1920s), there was a man named
Frankie Manning. Frankie said unto his friends: dance. Jazz music
had swung through the United States. The Lindy Hop was the
buzz of the towns. People were happy, except for one thing...

At the large dance halls, such as the Savoy Ballroom, there were
ropes that divided the black dancers from the white dancers. The
trouble with dancers is that they are often young and rebellious.
The white women wanted to dance with everyone. Studs. The
black men wanted to dance with everyone. Sluts. The white men
couldn’t dance. The black women stood around looking hot. The
trouble was that these people didn’t see ethnicity. They heard
only the music; in their hearts they only wanted to swing-out with
another person. Skin color didn’t matter; so why the ropes?

Quite quickly, the ropes were jumped. Black and white people
danced with one another: the walls of segregation started to
splinter. Since then, Lindy Hop has enlivened social scenes,
introduced prospective lovers, financially supported musicians,
given people a fun reason to exercise, formed compassionate
communities, taught humility, put smiles on faces around the
world, and held fundraisers for worthy causes. Lindy Hoppers also
rebelled against Nazis.
