This is quite possibly the most creatively obtuse rendering of evolutionary theory I’ve ever come across. I’m still shaking my head. Pushing teens into being sexually active. (h/t Pharyngula)
On a similar subject, this guy got elected. People voted for this: Brecheen discusses evolution and Darwinian Theory. And Pharyngula skewers: When did Oklahoma start electing shaved apes to their legislature?
I wonder if he stands in front of a mirror and practices being this stupid? Bryan Fischer: Whoops: homosexuals lose get out of jail free card. (h/t JMG)
Wow. UGANDA: Pastor Martin “Eat Da Poo Poo” Ssempa Charged With Blackmail. Note that Uganda is close to making homosexuality an offense punishable by execution. What a great way to get rid of your opponents — gay or straight — in that case… o.O
Those of us who don’t know history are condemned to repeat it. But that’s better than having done the history and forgetting all about it: Gingrich, of all people, says House Dems don’t “have the moral authority to pass anything” in lame-duck session.

Manchin Admits Mistake and Apologizes. Manchin is not getting off to a very good start on his congressional term. I wonder if he plans to vote democratic at all in the next two years?
Comedy Central steps up to the political media plate. No, really, that is what the USA’s media has been reduced to. Kudos to Jon Stewart — we all owe you a big one. Way to fall flat on your faces, you corporate media fuckers. THIS is the kind of stuff you are SUPPOSED to report on. It shouldn’t take a comedian over on aisle three to pick it up. What were you twits doing, too busy asking about the implications of showering with homosexuals to pay proper attention to actual news? Jon Stewart Did What Pundits And Reporters Should Have Done. ETA: the segment was really quite something. Here’s a link to more detailed description plus transcript: Full transcript: DailyShow brings on 9/11 first responders to blast Senate GOP!
TSA has no regular testing system for its pornoscanners. I just… WUT? Damn, I’m glad I have no personal issues with being groped, because I am not going into any of those machines. Inadequately tested and unmaintained? Give me a stranger’s hands, PLZKTHX. I trust evolution to have come up with nontoxic hands…
You know when you put it that way… “groups like FRC keep indicting heterosexual soldiers, making it sound as if our military is crawling with straight men and women whose violent tendencies towards other sexual orientations are hinging on a thin closet door” (via FRC staffer likens U.S. to Sodom and Gomorrah; we wonder if Biblical city had universal healthcare).
