Go to: Religious bigotry upheld in court

Where do her religious rights to object stop? Is she now entitled to refuse to marry a couple because God reveals to her that they're unlikely to stay married for very long?

Mental decision.

Go to: Award-winning comedian George Carlin dies

Bum - Carlin was very funny and thought provoking, and I have a lot of respect for his work.

Would it be desperately inappropriate to say "s___, p___, f___, c___, c___sucker, motherf___ker, and t__s" if I censored them..?

Go to: Ben Stein 1, Yoko Ono 0 in 'Expelled' copyright spat

Surely a better criticism of Expelled's use of 'Imagine' is that they appear not to understand the lyrics.

The bit they use in the film is:

"Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too"

In context, that's:

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

So, er, Lennon isn't suggesting we should imagine how the removal of religion would result in no killing and nothing to die for, he's saying one of two possible things, dependant on whether one believes the first and third lines of each stanza are connected:

1)imagine a world without countries - there'd be nothing to kill or die for, oh, and while yer at it, *also* imagine no religion.

Or

2)imagine a world without countries, then imagine having nothing to kill or die for,and *also* imagine no religion.

In either case, the 'and' makes it clear they're obviously independent statements.

How unlike Creationists to misuse and misunderstand what a quote's actually saying, eh?

Go to: Mail-boat record 'proves Darwin stole his original ideas from a Welsh scientist'

What are the chances of Mel Gibson starring as a woad-covered Wallace and bellowing, 'They'll never take our evolution!' in an unconvincing Welsh accent..?
