The Road to Theocracy

Hemant Mehta over at The Friendly Atheist has more on artist Molly Norris, who launched 'Everybody Draw Muhammad Day' ... and is now in hiding because of threats.


The Texas Board of Education, which recently revised its standards by way of downplaying the role of Thomas Jefferson and the 'wall of separation between church and state,' isn't done yet.

Now they're insisting that history textbooks used throughout America (some of which are no longer used in Texas) feature 'pro-Islam, anti-Christianity distortions' and need to be corrected.

The Board did not provide specific examples. Their claim is apparently based on there being 'far more lines of text promoting Islamic beliefs and practices than Christian beliefs and practices.'

So if I say, 'Islam, Islam, Islam' instead of 'Christ, Christ,' it means Islam is the better religion?

The sad thing is, we're well on the way to electing more of these idiots in November.


After seeing a clip of Sarah Palin at a recent public appearance, I have a new description for the former governor: breathlessly stupid.

Because she continues to demonstrate that she is absolutely thrilled to be a clueless trollop.


Which brings us to the Tea Party-backed Christine O'Donnell, another breathlessly clueless person. Just seeing her victory speech from earlier this week, O'Donnell adopts the same mannerisms as her idol.

Bloggers have dredged up gems from O'Donnell's past, including her leading role in an anti-masturbation campaign, her belief that society's problems stem from having taken God out of the classroom, and that you can legislate morality.

That is, she believes a government operating under Christian principles can effectively legislate your morality and behavior.

And here I thought the Tea Party was opposed to big, intrusive government.
