Go to: How Christian Were the Founders?

As Cynthia Dunbar, another Christian activist on the Texas board, put it, “The philosophy of the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.”

Stalinism is dead, but indoctrination of children is alive and well in Texas.

Go to: Human rights ruling against classroom crucifixes angers Italy

In that case, could the Vatican please hand over all their crucifixes to the Italian state? Being a symbol of Italian national identity, they have no place in an international religious institute.

Go to: Flat Earth Follies: The Religious Right's Egg Crusade

IIRC only 1 in 3 fertilized eggs makes it to pregnancy. Of the other 2, each and every one should be cause for a criminal investigation against the woman.

Then there's the phenomenon of vanishing twins, where a pregnancy starts with two embryos but only one survives. This would make at least 10% of the newborns the prime suspect in a murder case.

Conclusion: to prevent the judicial from collapsing under the load, condom use should be mandatory.
