Adapted from a note to Brian Leiter, in reference to Simon Blackburn, writing on Richard Dawkins:

Love is a Rose!!? Love is an emotion and a rose is a flower! A flower is a plant! How in god's name can an emotion be a plant!!

Language is a slippery slope. Once you allow metaphor, you risk the chance that someone is going to take it literally. You wanna get rid of religion, go to the root of the problem.
