We Actually Are Apes. Christians and Republicans Are Themselves Evidence of a Lack of Intelligent Design.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
…raised eyebrows Monday when he told GQ he couldn’t answer a question about the age of the earth because “I’m not a scientist, man.”
Having a top prospect for the 2016 presidential nomination say the age of the planet is “one of the great mysteries” comes at an awkward time for a party attempting to rebuild from its Nov. 6 drubbing at the hands of voters turned off by the GOP’s embrace of social conservatives. But Rubio is hardly alone among potential Republican presidential contenders. Other big names for 2016 have weighed in publicly at various times over the years to position themselves as supportive of creationism proponents.
In a radio interview with Voice of Christian Youth America, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) argued that his belief that global warming is a hoax is biblically inspired. Promoting his book The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, Inhofe told interviewer Vic Eliason on Wednesday that only God can change the climate, and the idea that manmade pollution could affect the seasons is “arrogance“
In the interview, Inhofe did not mention he has received $1,352,523 in campaign contributions from the oil and gas industry, including $90,950 from Koch Industries.
There is the distinct possibility that being a Republican or a Creationist indicates one has a genetic predisposition towards low cognitive function and mental disease. And one who is Republican Creationist cannot hold an honest train of thought for much more than thirty seconds.
GOP is SHIT and CHRISTIANS are ZOMBIES
Being Anti-Choice Doesn’t Come with a Medical Degree
As long as anti-choice advocates think they can dictate the practice of medicine in the United States, women’s lives are at risk. And the rate at which this trend is occurring is in a rapid state of acceleration, with more and more states passing legislation specifically aimed at limiting abortion access. Their argument is that abortion is dangerous and patients need more protection, despite the fact that this flies in the face of scientific research on the subject. 0.3% of abortion patients experience complications significant enough that they need to go to the hospital, making it an extremely safe procedure, especially when performed early.

That would be pretty good except there is no Allah.

“If you take birth control, your mother probably hates you.”
“I could look at any one of you in the eyes right now and tell if you’re going to be promiscuous.”
Such were the remarks of Pam Stenzel’s talk with students at George Washington high school in West Virginia at an assembly advertised as “God’s plan for sexual purity.”
It cost between $4,000-$6,000 dollars to bring Stenzel to the school to yell, berate and shame students about the consequences of having sex. To make matters worse, much of the information she provided was completely false like condoms aren’t safe and every sexual contact will lead to an STD or infertility.
Katelyn Campbell, student body vice president, refused to attend the assembly. Many of those who did attend complained about being extremely uncomfortable and some even left crying. Campbell decided it was time to take action. She filed a complaint with the ACLU about the assembly which she said was “slut shaming” and talked to the press about her objections.
Her principal George Aulenbacher called her to his office and said, “How would you feel if I called your college and told them what bad character you have and what a backstabber you are?”
He didn’t stop there. He continued to yell at her until she was driven to tears.
Of the incident Campbell has said, “He threatened me and my future in order to put forth his own personal agenda and made teachers and students feel they can’t speak up because of fear of retaliation.”
But Campbell will not be silenced, especially on this issue.
“West Virginia has the ninth highest pregnancy rate in the U.S.,” Campbell said. “I should be able to be informed in my school what birth control is and how I can get it. With the policy at GW, under George Aulenbacher, information about birth control and sex education has been suppressed.”
Campbell has since filed an injunction against her principal to prohibit him from retaliating against her for exercising her right to free speech. In a news conference at her attorney’s office Campbell said she wants Principal Aulenbacher to resign and apologize to the school community for her actions.
Campbell should not be threatened for standing up for comprehensive sexual education for herself and the rest of the student body. She should be applauded.
Send Campbell your support by signing a petition to call on the Kanawha County of West Virginia Board of Education to support comprehensive sexual education and every student’s right to free speech.
The Future of the Morning-After Pill Is The New Reality of American Catholics
The new Pope is hard at work doing the humble thing and trying to stop sex abuse, but that might not be enough to resolve the gap between the views of the Obama administration — and, increasingly, American Catholics — on contraception and the Church’s vehement stance against it.
Following a judge’s ruling that could make birth control available over the counter with no age restrictions within the month, the Obama administration announced Friday night that it will fight a subpoena from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, which is requesting documents about the Obamacare mandate for its lawsuit against the government. The Archdiocese, along with several other organizations, contend that the mandate violates freedom of religion because it requires that employee health insurance includes contraceptives. The White House, which is represented by the Justice Department, says the Archdiocese’s records request is “too burdensome to fulfill” as well as “inappropriate.” So, basically, it’s way too much work and you shouldn’t have asked in the first place.
The Obama administration tried to compromise with anti-contraception groups in February by allowing certain religious organizations to opt out of providing for contraception in their insurance plans. The employees would be given separate coverage through a third party at no additional cost to the organization. But this still wasn’t good enough for the Archdiocese, which claims it will face $200 million in penalties every year if it refuses to comply with the mandate.
The Archdiocese’s parishioners may not feel quite so strongly. Last month, a New York Times/CBS News poll showed that the vast majority of American Catholics supported at least some form of contraception — nine out of 10, for example, were hoping the new pope would allow the use of condoms to prevent sexually transmitted diseases. Seven out of 10 were in favor of artificial methods of birth control.
The poll also showed that half of those polled thought religious organizations should be allowed to opt out of paying for contraceptives through employee insurance. Last year, though, that number was two-thirds. That’s a pretty dramatic decrease in a short amount of time.
Perhaps most telling, eight out of 10 Catholics polled said that when it came to “difficult moral questions,” they were more likely to trust their guts than the pope’s teachings. Which means if they want to use artificial methods of contraception, they will. Even if the Pope tells them not to and the Archdiocese refuses to follow the current health care mandate.

One more pervert in office humping his magic hoho book, while exploiting the infinitely ignorant god fearing moron vote. Whoopie…America, a land of officious clowns. Such a stark silhouette is created by the meaningless histrionics of our bozopoliticians laid against the backdrop of global warming. For these leaders to be oblivious to the impending, and at this point in time, somewhat palpable horror that may befall us all rather soon, one must see with a rather surreal clarity what clowns
our leaders really are.

Some divine excerpts: “Eve, a woman, wanted to learn and the celibate god, who evidently had a penis but was destined to the hell of never using it except on his hand, said no. Eve, hilariously told god, the male folks imaginary friend, to go fuck himself (who else could he fuck - no goddesses), and Eve decided to learn anyway. Adam, Eve’s boyfriend and a devout coward, who by the way had a penis like the god fucker, did not have Eve’s back. And ever since Adam pissed himself, men have been known as cowards who blame those, whose genitals are not represented by a made up christian deity, for everyone’s problems forever.”

If you’re still wondering whether the Family Research Council is a hate group, you can stop now.
FRC President Tony Perkins was a big backer of the Council Of Conservative Citizens (CofCC), formerly the White Citizens’ Council — or the “Uptown Klan,” as it used to be known. According to the report:
In 1996, while managing the U.S. Senate campaign of Woody Jenkins against Mary Landrieu, Perkins paid $82,500 to use the mailing list of former Klan chieftain David Duke. The campaign was fined $3,000 (reduced from $82,500) after Perkins and Jenkins filed false disclosure forms in a bid to hide their link to Duke. Five years later, on May 17, 2001, Perkins gave a speech to the Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist group that has described black people as a “retrograde species of humanity.” Perkins claimed not to know the group’s ideology at the time, but it had been widely publicized in Louisiana and the nation, because in 1999 — two years before Perkins’ speech to the CCC — Republican House Speaker Trent Lott had been embroiled in a national scandal over his ties to the group. GOP chairman Jim Nicholson then urged Republicans to avoid the CCC because of its “racist views.” The Duke incident surfaced again in local press in 2002, when Perkins ran for the Republican nomination for the Senate, dooming his campaign to a fourth-place finish in the primaries.
Family Research Council is a hate group — and FRC President Tony Perkins is a white Christian supremacist hater.
Sometimes a mop sink is just a mop sink.
Building managers and legislative staffers have sought to reassure some concerned Tennessee lawmakers that recent renovations at the state Capitol did not install special facilities for Muslims to wash their feet before praying.
“I confirmed with the facility administrator for the State Capitol Complex that the floor-level sink installed in the men’s restroom outside the House Chamber is for housekeeping use,” Legislative Administration Director Connie Ridley wrote in an email. “It is, in layman’s terms, a mop sink.”
The nearly $16 million renovation completed in December focused on upgrading electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems in the more than 150-year-old Capitol. Parts of the building also got new carpets, paint and security upgrades.
Senate Clerk Russell Humphrey said he had been approached by a House and Senate member to inquire about the sink, which replaced a utility sink that had been mounted higher on the wall and was used for filling and emptying buckets.
“There was concern about why it had been modified,” said Humphrey, who declined to identify the lawmakers or elaborate on their concerns.
“I certainly wouldn’t want to quote a member inaccurately about what they may or may not have said,” he said.
Republican Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, confirmed that he had spoken to Humphrey about whether there were religious reasons for the new sink after the issue was raised by Rep. Judd Matheny, R-Tullahoma.
“I just asked the question about what was the intent of that,” Ketron said. “And it satisfied my curiosity after it was presented to me.”
Matheny denied that he was involved in raising questions about the basin.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he told The Associated Press last week. “It’s not ringing a bell.”
While details of the practice vary by sect, Muslims are required to wash their faces, hands and feet before praying as an act of ablution, or ritual purification. Forms of ablution are practiced in almost all major faiths.
If any of those Republican assholes had ever mopped a floor in their life, then they’d know that a floor-level sink is much more useful/practical than a sink that is about 3 feet off the ground.
