13.5 Games

Jerry Fallwell

Pardon me while I shed not a single, solitary tear upon his passing.

Consider the following before you shed any of your own:

  • He often claimed to be a "Doctor" (of divinity one assumes), but he only possessed three honorary degrees- two from unaccredited institutions.
  • He was a segregationist.
  • He supported apartheid in South Africa.
  • He said the following about homosexuals: "AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals."
  • He believed all American schools should be run by the church, not the government.
  • He said the following about 9/11: I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and th feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.'"
Where, I ask you, is the "morality" in any of that?

Scottish National Party 47, Labour Party 46

Those days are past now,
And in the past
they must remain,
But we can still rise now,
And be the nation again,

And soon, it appears...


I was flipping by the first Republican debate and saw three of the candidates raise their hands in response to the question- and I paraphrase- "Who doesn't believe in evolution?"

In 2007, that's chilling.
