Oh for crying in the beer.....

Words fail me. Well maybe other than "Hey, Oklahoma Legislature! Reality check!" anyway.

----3:20 DST (Pacific) edit after reading another post in dark_christian (which is also where I found the first link).

And then there's Texas. Talk about living down to your reputation...

Some people just do not want to have to move forward into the 20th century.

I think some of 'em bounced off the 19th century and are now headed the other way... which would put them in the 17th with Bishop Ussher which explains a lot.

Remember, Kay, these days Young Earth Creationism has become THE litmus test of whether you are Really a Christian. If you're not YEC, You're Not Really Saved.

Along with Pin-the-Tail-on-The-Antichrist and Culture War Without End Amen, YEC has BECOME the Gospel. Jesus Christ (Didn't he have something to do with this Gospel business once upon a time?) got thrown under the YEC bus a long time ago (or maybe He saw where they were heading and bailed out the back window).

Right, and I'm the Pope Joan. :)

Me, I'll stick with the guy who told the Pharisees where to stick it and ran the money changers out of the temple.

BTW - just out of curiosity, who are you?

I find none of this amazing. Anyone who hasn't seen how anti-intellect religion - especially Baptist sects - can be hasn't been looking. It doesn't take much insight or effort; these people are as subtle as an Iowa class battleship, though much less pretty or well-mannered.

It's not so much the nutcases, as the apparent readiness of the government to go along with the nutcases. No, not new, still annoying to put it mildly.

Note also that there are a LOT of religions, and a lot of subsets of religions, and not all are anti-intellect by any means.
