First, a snippet from an article at The Olympian Online about banning Al Gore’s film in schools:
"Condoms don’t belong in school, and neither does Al Gore. He’s not a schoolteacher," said Frosty Hardison, a parent of seven who doesn’t want the film shown at all.
"The information that’s being presented is a very cockeyed view of what the truth is," Hardison told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. "The Bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn’t in the DVD."
I’ll show my intolerance again by saying anyone who starts a sentence with "The bible says" has already lost credibility. Whose to say that the bible itself is "a very cockeyed view?" I will. I’m sick of Jesus zombies shoving their morality at others.
So, the Christ cultists in Washington state don’t want their broods (seven kids?!?) to know how much Americans are depleting planetary resources and poisoning their God’s perfect world. Better to mindlessly consume, overpopulate with abandon and invoke the scriptures than face the hard facts of the consequences of human shortsightedness.
Now why does the phrase "suffer the children" come to mind?
