Stephen Jay Gould Archive: "Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002)"

Stephen Jay Gould was a man I greatly admired.

I really do admire Condalezza Rice. She is the epitome of the American Dream. She shows that with hard work and determination women and racial minorities can be just as self-serving, duplicitous and politically corrupt as any white man. Congratulations Dr. Rice.

Yahoo! News - Tenn. County Wants to Charge Homosexuals

The county that was the site of the Scopes "Monkey Trial" over the teaching of evolution is asking lawmakers to amend state law so the county can charge homosexuals with crimes against nature.

The Rhea County commissioners approved the request 8-0 Tuesday.

Commissioner J.C. Fugate, who introduced the measure, also asked the county attorney to find a way to enact an ordinance banning homosexuals from living in the county.

"We need to keep them out of here," Fugate said.

These are the consequences of Pro-Life politics. We are just a hop, skip and a jump away from couples being charged with failure to allow conception for abstaining from sex or using birth control and depriving the right to life of a potential child.

Orcinus: "Scourging the schools"

In a nutshell:

The religious right knows that the only way it will win this Culture War it has started is by relentlessly attacking, on a multitude of fronts. These range from cutting taxes so severely that social and education programs are gutted; rendering the issue of gay marriage a national cause celebre; attacking abortion rights at every step; restricting civil liberties and promoting the notion that church-state separation is a "myth"; and finally, engaging in a relentless propaganda war over the right-wing airwaves, both radio and television, that pounds tirelessly at the notion that liberalism is the cause of all the nation's problems, and that America's real identity is a "Christian" one. On one hand, they attack Janet Jackson's breast and Howard Stern's foul mouth as benchmarks of our supposed moral depravity, but simultaneously swoon over a sadomasochistic representation of the Crucifixion that is one of the most violent films ever made and assure us that such spectacles improve the nation's moral fiber.

God Only Talks to Conservatives

So, let's look at this closely so that we can be clear as to what is going on. First, by expressing a rather liberal point of view and sharply disagreeing with conservatives, Andy Rooney is "trashing" God. Apparently, when Pat Robertson claims that God will be sending disaster and devastation to places like Florida because of things like "Gay Days" at Disney World, though, he isn't trashing God.

Second, when Andy Rooney expresses his political ideas and expresses those ideas through God, that's "pontificating," but when Pat Robertson claims that he's heard from God that George W. Bush will win the next election or when Mel Gibson claims that his film was the work of the Holy Spirit, that isn't "pontificating." This is, I think, a rather un-subtle attempt to claim that God only speaks to and through conservatives - a complete denial that Christianity and God could be any more liberal than people like Joshua Claybourn and Pat Robertson.

What arrogant, self-righteous pap.

I couldn't agree more!
