Rapture Monday: In the wake of justice
No Rapture Monday last week. I was convinced the world would
end and no one would be left to read the blog. My bad. The
is up 2 points to 153 since we last checked it. Jews and
Israel have come under "heavy verbal attack". Seems like
that would be preferable to mortar fire, but not when you
are as committed as Kirk Cameron to dancing on the
still-smoldering embers of the unchosen! We've got two weeks
of highlights from the Religiously Correct for your
Sunday was Justice
Sunday, part 2. Think
Progress has some highlights from the folks who oppose
enshrining Islam in the Iraq constitution but want their
very own American sharia. My favorite quote comes
from Phyllis Schlafly: "How do the judges get away with
such outrageous decisions? By asserting that Supreme Court
decisions are the supreme law of the land. But you know that
is not true. That is a terrible heresy." To Schlafly, of
course, the Supreme Law of the Land is God's law, as
revealed specifically to her, through His emissaries, the
Republican donor class. Your handy guide is here.
- Leading up to Justice Sunday 2, the Religiously Correct
were complaining that the Washington
Post's fashion writer wrote about John Roberts children.
Fashion writers: "the kind of people who have been picking
our judges for years".
- Justice Sunday was bad, but it wasn't an abomination. I
know this, because I've seen abomination.
His name is Fred Phelps.
- Intelligent Design won't go
- Bill Frist, star performer of Justice Sunday I, is now
non grata given his position on embryonic stem cell
research. Mama says "Science is the devil."
- The Catholic Church opposes the use of birth control,
but is willing to make a few checkbook-related exceptions.
- Watch the FRC scramble to determine whether John Roberts
is homophobic enough.
Tony Perkins says yes, but Paul
Weyrich says, "Oh, hell no!".
- California homophobes are mad because the attorney
general has accurately
described the real world effects of their ballot
- Oklahoma homophobes want to ban some books. One book is
on the list because it regards
homosexuality as normal.
- Wrap your mind around this. The same movement that wants
to ban books that discuss homosexuality, cries that teaching
kids evolution without Intelligent Design is censorship.
- Did you know that homosexuals in America die up to 30
years earlier than heterosexuals, making homophobia really a
way to help people live longer? You probably didn't, because
it's flat not true.
- Is our children learning? I don't know. I'm too worried
about whether is our little boys thinking
