This is your brain on dispensationalism #1

The week in fundie . . .

* Art teacher fired after students see nude sculpture at an art museum. No, I'm not talking about that episode of the Simpsons where Marge campaigns against Itchy and Scratchy: this really happened. (Via Dispatches from the Culture Wars)

* Adele Horin rightly points out the Federal Government's hypocrisy in waxing lyrical about the need for (Muslim) immigrants to adhere to "Australian values" on the one hand, and then leaping to the defence of that misogynistic, democracy-hating cult known as the Exclusive Brethren on the other. Nabob of NABA Andrew Bolt predictably cries: "Look! Over there! Muslims!" (Via Blisters and Weeds)

* Judge Jones talks about how an email death threat caused him to seek US Marshal protection after he ruled in favour of science in the Kitzmiller vs Dover Area School District case. (Via Bruce's Rave and Rant)
