Can No One Take a Joke Anymore?

Earlier tonight I made an update on my Facebook page that said: "I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left." By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, But the heart of the fool to the left." ~ Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)"
Since then, I've had 4 people send me private messages telling me (very sharply) that I needed to remove it and that I should not make such statements and that I was twisting the Bible... and so on. 
Good grief people... it's a JOKE!  Some of you need to buy yourself some new panties and underwear that are not so tight or don't ride up on you, because you have a real problem. And if you want to "unfriend" me... please be my guest. I'm really quite tired of sanctimonious people. Adios.
