Tim Tebow as a poster-child for a pro-life pitch is the same as Adolf Hitler for a pro-choice pitch. Both arguments are equally specious.

The irony is that the ad celebrates the CHOICE Pam Tebow made in keeping her fetus (giving birth is a choice)- even while working to deny other women the CHOICE to do so. Surely the religious are very very simple minded.

The one counter argument to ORielly which Dr Dawkins did not make, is how do we know "which Creator". JC may well be wrong. Why is the creator not Amun-Ra or Brahma? Maybe that "controversy" need also be taught in the classroom.
Though of course Dr Dawkins came across as brilliant and Bill O as a screaming buffoon( when all else fails call the guy a Fascist)

I do not understand why it is unfair not to persecute the good Christian for her rights- her reward (according to her belief system) will be in Heaven- so she should welcome the martyrdom she is getting- not get her panties in a twist about the ads. And good Christians should be preaching Job to their congregatiosn, not complaining about persecution. They should not expect to have it both ways- reward on earth AND in heaven for their beliefs.

I love the ban dictionary idea.

The VHP has been poisoning Indian social life for a long while now. They have been slowly insidiously been percolating into the poorer more wretched areas of the country and impose an "invented" form of Hindutva as national identity. And they get a major part of their funds from non resident Indians abroad, through temples and trusts and organizations like the Hindu students council.Admirers of the Nazis they too wish to impose an "Aryan" supremacy albeit a Hinduized version of one. This and their parent party, the BJP are a pain that India can no longer bear.
