EDIT: And finally, this...
Probably not worksafe, likely to offend pro-lifers and He-Man fandom.

Georgia ok's teaching of bible in school

My response to the proponents of such things is simple: "let's teach the Koran" It has more followers worldwide then Chistianity, and understanding it would see releveant considering current geopolitical events. Suddenly the support for religious instruction dies off when you say that.

"Ok, how about teaching them both?"

Wait, that'd be a comparitive religious studies class, which georgia already has.

And I wonder why these "open minded" people denied them...

Gays on campus

"Unlike A&M, not all colleges allowed the activists on campus.

Soulforce organizers said they were denied access to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Okla., Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., and Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va."

Before it disappears from the front page of Daily Kos, take a look at this diary. It describes the covert, ongoing 20-year scheme by a cadre of evangelical organizations and wealthy far-right foundations to undermine the Main Line denominations that make up the National Council of Churches.

I was there when this began.

Greetings! I've been reading DC for months- I guess it's about time I posted...

I've been wondering what has happened with H.R #1070 and its companion bill in the Senate- you know the one- "Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL) has introduced the Constitution Restoration Act of 2005, which amends the federal judicial code to prohibit the U.S. Supreme Court and the federal district courts from exercising jurisdiction over any matter in which relief is sought against an entity of federal, state, or local government or an officer or agent of such government concerning that entity's, officer's, or agent's acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government."
I found the most up-to-date information on http://www.cwfpac.com/index.htm. You can view the supporters of this monstrosity and email them directly, thanks to the Campaign for Working Families;) Though the percentage of supporters is rather small (45), it is still appalling that it has been introduced at all. If there is other news out there about this, please fill me in!

The power of Prayer and its value in the real world.....

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]navytron89) For years, I've always heard you have to pray for someone. 

It was something my mother said to me when my father went under the knife for heart surgery and passed away.

I remember listening to all those religious reich nutjobs who made outrageous claims that the power of prayer would heal people and believe in it.

Well looks like someone finally said let's put this to a test and look at it scientifically and the results are under the cut.

This will most likely be the new hot button topic for Pat Robertson and the rest of the Religious Reich to go all splody head over.

 I'm amazed that CNN actual had this information available and not buried in the archives somewhere.  I could not get it to link so I figured to cut and paste this before the it disappears off the interweb.

Redemption Among the Faithful

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]evil_genius)

Posters note: It's really tragic how convinced these people are of their own righteousness. They have no idea how much damage they are doing to their country and their children children future. Thoughtful intelligent rational people didn't create the Taliban. Men of faith convinced of their own righteousness, or at least willing to pretend to take advantage of the same, did. The fact DeLay and those like him can see the similarities is tragedy on a Shakespearian level. o.k. enough ranting......

There are those who would say Tom DeLay lost his job as House majority leader because he was indicted by a Texas grand jury on charges of money laundering and conspiracy, or because of his extensive ties to lawbreaking lobbyist Jack Abramoff. But they would be wrong.

In fact, the Texas Republican fell from power because he is a Christian.

That, at least, is the view of Rick Scarborough, convener of a conference this week called "The War on Christians."

"I believe the most damaging thing that Tom DeLay has done in his life is take his faith seriously into public office, which made him a target for all those who despise the cause of Christ," Scarborough said, introducing DeLay yesterday. When DeLay finished, the host reminded the politician: "God always does his best work right after a crucifixion."
