This afternoon, How the World Works will be your one-stop shop for regular updates on asinine Christian antics. A couple of weeks ago, I noted
that the news that a Hindu prayer would kick off the U.S. Senate session on July 12 was not warmly received by some of the more troglodytic regions of the Web. Today, three self-styled Christian "patriots" physically attempted to disrupt the prayer, shouting, among other things, that "this was an abomination."
Talking Points Memo has the video. Ultrabrown and Sepia Mutiny pour on the ridicule.
In combination with my earlier post today on the
Christian jihadis in Boulder, Colo., this latest eruption of stupidity poses a puzzler for those of us who do believe in evolution. If Darwin was right, how does such religious idiocy survive? What is it fit for?
