The dissent, clearly troubled by the notion using the failure to express a lack of assent as evidence of assent, illustrates its point by quoting one of the great thinkers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, Homer Simpson:
Homer Simpson talking to God: “Here’s the deal: you freeze everything as it is, and I won’t ask for anything more. If that is OK, please give me absolutely no sign. [no response] OK, deal. In gratitude, I present you this offering of cookies and milk. If you want me to eat them for you, please give me no sign. [no response] Thy will be done.” The Simpsons: And Maggie Makes Three (Fox television broadcast, Jan. 22, 1995).
