Topless photos (arms crossed over her breasts, back turned to camera) of a then-17 year-old Carrie Prejean have surfaced, which may cost Prejean her Miss California title. They also put a bit of tarnish on her all-American, proper Christian girl act.

Add to that the allegations that the pageant organizers provided financial ... um ... support for Prejean's breast augmentation surgery, and we have a complete phony.

The British Home Secretary made public a list of 16 individuals who are persona non grata in the United Kingdom. The list includes radio talk-show personality Michael Savage, and Rev. Fred 'God Hates ______' Phelps from the Westboro Baptist Church.

Savage expressed disbelief that anyone would lump him together with Muslim extremists and racists, while Phelps' organization said, 'Thanks for the free press!'

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Indiana) doesn't believe in evolution. On MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, Pence hems and haws his way through an incoherent answer.

" I believe in evolution? I embrace the, the view that god created the heavens and the earth and the seas and all that's in them," Pence said. "The means Chris that he used to do that...I can't say, but I do believe in that fundamental truth."

Pence signs off on the usual Creationist nonsense, that there's some 'controversy' to be taught or respected, and that we should let our children decide 'based on the facts.'

Fact would require taking the Bible out of the discussion entirely. The Scientific Method establishes fact as that which is testable, repeatable, and independently verifiable. The Bible is a contradictory written record ultimately assembled by committee long after the actual events and authors had passed.
