Morons on the March

There is nothing more dangerous than a conservative who invokes the name of God:

“God has spoken to me,” DeLay said. “I listen to God, and what I’ve heard is that I’m supposed to devote myself to rebuilding the conservative base of the Republican party, and I think we shouldn’t be underestimated.” (Source)

Conservative ideology breeds fear and spreads ignorance. Beware.

Here’s a fun trick I learned from Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins: replace “God” with “Zeus” or “Gaia” and see how it sounds.

    The Flying Spaghetti Monster speaks to me, and I don’t think that sounds strange. I doubt Gaia ever sounded correct.
