 Why? What on earth is the "Scientifically Rational Right"? Never heard of it.

I don't know--Objectivists?

But I think it is a bit exaggerating to say that we are going the way of the U.S.The Canadian public simply has no taste for U.S. style religiosity.

 

I think the point of the book is that we think we have no taste for "U.S.-style religiosity", but that's what we're being fed, and we haven't even noticed. The author was in Washington during the 80's when the same stuff was being said about U.S. politics. They thought the whole Christian thing was just a passing phase. Oops.

Go to: Conservatives Say 'Don't Ask' Repeal Would Hurt Military Chaplains

"Allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly will "create a crisis of conscience for the chaplains," he said.

So... get new chaplains.

Not to divert the conversation or anything, but wasn't there a big announcement here about two months ago about a fancy new website RD was launching? It sounded like the website launch was imminent, but if anything this site has been a lot more dead and outdated lately. Is there going to be something exciting happening on the website or is this it? I am a little concerned, since I did donate some money to RDFRS this fiscal year because I was under the impression that you guys did web outreach, something I view as important to reaching secular youth.

Don't get me wrong--I do appreciate the links to the odd newspaper story or radio interview, etc. But... will there be more?

Interesting factoid: the very same Kellogg that they mention in the article (ran the naturopathic sanitarium) was also the guy who invented the cereal! It's true--flavourless grain flakes was a new therapy he was trying out, but they actually caught on for whatever reason.
