  1. So much hate in many of those links. It's very depressing.

  2. Thanx for the mention.
    Also, the pharyngula post is discussing exactly what I ran into. Thanx

  3. Wow, so women can wear pants outside of class at Bob Jones U. This reminds me of the Mormons trying to look "cool." They go a little too far, then scramble around the PR.


  4. Nurse Myra -- It can be very depressing. That's why open-minded people need to speak up against this kind of thinking.

    Sabio -- You're welcome. The whole Bible and genocide issue is an interesting one.

    Donna -- I'll take a look at that video tonight. Thanks!

  5. RE: Santorum
    Santorum just made a gaff which was concise enough to sound-bite. What's really sad is the number of Republican candidates who obviously feel the same way, but haven't expressed it so concisely as to look like such a hypocrite. I mean, I don't think that the Right, in theory, is so bad. I can appreciate different, and logically based opinions on how to run the country. But when you through Religious in front of Right, it seems that you have to leave logic at the door, and that scares the bejesus out of me.

  6. After reading of Pam Geller's warning that my turkey might be halal I once again gave thanks that people like Pam are on guard 24/7 to preserve my freedom and liberties by battling against ritually impure turkeys. I am able to sleep soundly at night knowing she is on guard against the most pressing problems facing my country.

  7. Wise Fool -- As it should. I think a lot of the Religious Right's ideas have or would be detrimentila to the country.

    Paul -- Thank goodness for Pam! But what if our vegetarian friends are eating ritually impure tofurkies this Thanksgiving? The horror!
