What the Fu-*BOOOM*

OK, I want you guys to look at something, and I want you to tell me if it looks like bullying or discrimination to you.

You ready?

It seems Ken Ham is more butthurt about Bill Nye than we thought.

OK, so it's been a while.  My outrage meter must have been on the fritz or something.  BUT, I've got something interesting for you:  Apparently Answers in Genesis is pushing this new movie called "A Matter of Faith".  It's plot is almost identical to that "God is Not Dead" movie a while back:  Kid goes to college, but there's an atheist professor, hero "debates" professor, etc. etc.  I'll link you to the trailer, but I honestly recommend you skip it.  Instead I'll link you to vidmaker Mr. Repzion who takes it apart for us, before I give you my interpretation (which I doubt will be much different from Rep's, despite not yet having watched his response which somehow only JUST FREAKING NOW showed up while looking for a non-AIG source for the actual trailer.)

Mmmmm, Pie...

Okay, so I probably DON'T have to tell you all about the morons who are upset that the new Cosmos  doesn't give time to creationists.  I'm not going to link to any articles today (which is a weird feeling, because I'm so used to being one of the few bloggers who actually do that, despite how little I post), because they're EVERYWHERE.  Go to your favorite news/aggregator site and you'll probably find three different articles on these morons.

Wait, what does that have to do with the title?

You'd think they'd know by now...

OK, I'm sure you've heard of the douchebag that decided to try to write legislation to ban gay people from playing for the NFL, right?  Well, there's two things to this story.  The first is obvious: such discrimination is, I'm reasonably certain, a direct violation of the Equal Protection clause....again.

The second one?  Well, I can't really do it justice, so I'll let David Pakman do it for me.  He's good at keeping his amusement in check:

Man, evangelicals have REALLY bad lawyers.

It's like they don't understand how to do their job.  Even I could kick their ass, and I only have three years of paralegal training.  Seriously, this one is just bad.

What am I talking about, you ask?  Well, the Mormons and a few various Evangelical organizations (including the Lutheran-Missouri Synod folks)have filed an amicus curae brief in the Utah marriage equality case, and their arguments are bad.  I mean "milk that you left sitting on the counter for a month in a Mexico summer" bad. I'll forgo giving them the Courier treatment (they deserve comic sans, really, but that option isn't available in the dropdown, and I'm too lazy to do so many HTML tags) and stick their crappy arguments in Trebuchet font, with my responses in the default font.  The headings are from their brief, and will denote different sections.  Stay with me, this'll get long.

Seriously‽ In THIS day and age‽

OK, y'all know about the rulings of Engel v. Vitale and Abington v. Schempp, right?  Well, if not (and the wikipedia articles are tl:dr) they say that public schools cannot endorse religion or prayer.  At all.  I mean that if you lead the class in prayer or cite a bible verse every morning in the school announcements you're breaking the goddamned law.

It seems that some dumbasses in Louisiana haven't figured that out...

Really, just read that and get back to me...

What the...

WHERE THE BLUE BLOODY BUMFUCK ARE MY COMMENTS?!  Google, seriously, what happened?  I'm looking through my options, and it looks like nothing SHOULD have happened to them, so where are they?

EDIT:  OK Google, what the hell...Turning off Google+ comments FIXED the issue.  If this doesn't tell you that G+ is a broken piece of narwhal shit, you have narwhal shit in your brains.
