The "truths" or truisms that are entrenched in the consensus reality
of the United States and other cults. Poking fun at those truth-like things (or denying or challenging them) gets you the same reaction you'd get if you told a kid there was no Santa Claus, but since it isn't a kid you're talking to, you get a much richer array of negative responses. Don't try this at a Young Republicans gathering or a Billy Graham crusade. Or on /.
