Santorum, Dominionist Code Words & The Green Dragon

Thanks, Rick Santorum! No, really This man really is an atheist blogger gold mine.  He has just the right combination of myopia and arrogance to say what many conservatives think, but do not express in public.  He is truly the great white christian hope of the GOP.

“Religious Freedom” and the Conservative Quest for Absolute Truth Those who feel plagued by the fear of uncertainty will grasp at any issue that comes along if it offers another opportunity to draw firm boundaries. If that issue concerns institutional religion, so much the better, because the language of limits and hierarchies is already prominent in that sphere.”

Shocking Newsflash: Infamous Atheist Wears Mismatched Socks! The very fact that they're grasping at these fragments of straw shows how little purchase they've really gotten.

Two things about that Santorum vs. Megadeth quiz: 1) Megadeth is not Satanic. That is a stupid assertion on the part of Mother Jones. 2) I got a 6 out of 10. The quiz is actually hard to distinguish between the two and I know my old school Megadeth.

The "excuse" for burning of the Koran in Afghanistan is legit IF true. They were cleaning a detention center library out and the books had all kinds of extremist shit written in them. They were ordered to simply burn everything. Now, if you were ordered to do this would you be able to distinguish the Koran from any other book when they are all in another language?

I'm not making a judgement call one way or another on the original order. Just saying that IF that is how it happened I understand why it happened.
