  1. The Oak Scouts sounds like a promising group. I've long felt that keeping children in segregated environment, including gender-segregated, has subtle but serious harmful effects.

  2. Love the HuffPo piece. Go to any church potluck and see a host of Biblical literalists engaging in gluttony.

  4. It is quite amazing how selectively many believers read the Bible - which they claim defines their moral code. I can't think of a less moral book.

    Happy New Year, Ahab!

    1. Agi Tater -- Long time no see! Nice to see you again at my blog. Fundamentalists are incredibly selective about the scriptural passages they heed, but the contradictory content of the Bible makes this difficult to avoid.
