Some people do get it.

A Jewish Air Force veteran takes on right-wing evangelism in the military.

Open, vicious anti-semitism in the military academies. Does Godwin's Law really apply when the parallels to Nazi Germany are so clear?

Current Mood: appalled

Interesting article....


There's hope even for the zealous, it seems:

Creationism museum in KY

Out of morbid curiosity, I'd love to actually look around in there and check out what they're saying. Without, you know, giving them money to do it.

Article here

PETERSBURG, Ky. — Like most natural history museums, this one has exhibits showing dinosaurs roaming the Earth. Except here, the giant reptiles share the forest with Adam and Eve.

That, of course, is contradicted by science, but that's the point of the $25 million Creation Museum rising fast in rural Kentucky.

The stirring on the mount

St. Helens used in drive to prove biblical creation with science

SILVERLAKE, Wash. - “Look! You can see the mountain!”

Lloyd Anderson springs ahead of the small group of visitors he has been leading through Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Reaching a small observational clearing, he sweeps his arm toward the horizon and bounces with excitement as he waits for the group — Forest Carnine, a cattle rancher from Angora, Neb.; his wife, Dorothy; their daughter-in-law, Ingrid Carnine of Boring, Ore.; and her two young sons — to catch up.

It is one of those rare days when the weather in southwest Washington clears so you can see Mount St. Helens, which rises behind Anderson and his joyous grin. The snow-capped volcano dazzles against a crystal blue sky, its peak obliterated 25 years ago in an eruption that left it looking like a dish of vanilla ice cream whose top has been scooped off by an eager child.

Lloyd Anderson still gets revved up by the mountain. He is 69 and hard of hearing, but when he gets rolling in the booming cadences of the nondenominational minister he was until 1999, the years fall away and the words tumble out with the message he has committed his retirement to bringing forth. Which is: The Earth is only a few thousand years old, and what happened here in 1980 proves it.

In the beginning ...
Anderson and his wife, Doris, are the founders of the Mount St. Helens Creation Information Center and curators of the 7 Wonders Creation Museum. They represent a third wave of modern biblical creationist thinking, one that says hard-core science proves the Genesis account of creation.

Newest chapter in the Mel Gibson story ..

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]lihan161051)

Mel Gibson Arrested on Terrorism Charges.

And you thought I was kidding.. )


Apparently even I can be fooled. The site is pretty clearly a spoof, from diligent whois searches done on the domain as well as deeper looks at the site content. My apologies for not catching this sooner. Moderator's call on whether I pull it or leave it up as more of a humor discussion. I'm still sort of convinced that Mel may pull a Kirk Cameron on us one of these days, though, and this seemed to indicate that today was the day. But that, as they say, is no excuse ..

Oy. Debate between Democrat and his five challengers in Colorado:

Bentley Rayburn spoke of opening Iraq to the word of Jesus. He and Duncan Bremer said they had been called by God to campaign for Congress.

An exchange on abortion between Democrat Jay Fawcett and Jeff Crank was illustrative of the event.

Fawcett explained his prochoice stance by saying: "I have no desire to dictate your faith to you, and I hope you have no desire to dictate mine for me."

Crank, who supports outlawing abortion, shot back that votes on abortion always are based on the faith of the member deciding them.

"We need to stop this phony baloney about not bringing faith into the public square," the former Chamber of Commerce vice president said. "We absolutely need to bring faith into the public square." [...]

Rayburn, a retired Air Force major general, framed several answers in terms of what "we as Christians" would do. As he has throughout the campaign, he described the war in Iraq as a battle against radical Islam and said establishing a democracy in Iraq would send a message.

"That will open up hope within these countries for the gospel of Jesus Christ to change hearts," he said.

Rayburn and Bremer, a former El Paso county commissioner, said they believe God had called them to run for office.

"I want to be God's man in Washington," Bremer told the crowd. "I want to represent the heart of this district . . . whether people who are saved and working side by side with you or whether people who are unsaved."

Operation Save America

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]_butterkup_) I didn't see any one else mention this Salon.com article, so I'm taking a chance.

Ostensibly, it is about abortion rights in Mississippi, but here is the opening paragraph:

Aug. 1, 2006 | JACKSON, Miss. -- Flip Benham was going to burn a Koran at Mississippi's state Capitol on July 18 but he couldn't get a fire permit. The blaze was to be the culmination of an antiabortion rally that Benham, director of Operation Save America, billed as an "ecclesiastical court." His attack on Islam might seem like a non sequitur, but to Benham, it made perfect sense. "Islam is the same thing as abortion and homosexuality," he said. "It's the black-colored glove covering the same fist, which is the fist of the devil." Benham had T-shirts made up, black with white lettering, proclaiming, "Homosexuality Is Sin! Islam Is a Lie! Abortion Is Murder! Some Issues Are Just Black and White!"

You may have to click through the ad to read the rest of it, but I recommend the piece.  It may be found here: Abortion under siege in Mississippi.  Even if you are pro-life, take a look.  These people seem dangerous to me, though I doubt they are on any terror watch lists.
