Um... Evolution?

If you've been following the drama of Teddy Bear Trial of a British national in Sudan then you may be wondering as I am why any sane person would consider religion, any religion, a reasonable framework to hang one's moral framework. Whether it's naming a stuffed animal after a prophet or insisting that the ten commandments belong in civil courtrooms the commonality of insensitivity to the broader society they inhabit shared by many people of faith is undeniable. Is there really that much difference between the office clerk in Sudan that ratted out this poor British teacher or the fundamentalist nutjob in Kansas that insists evolution is controversial?

A pox on all their houses.

Preferably small pox.

I prefer Ebola or Anthrax.

But that's just that crazy brown people religion. Our religion that worships our prophet and our one god with a different name is totally sane. Don't believe me? Once we get control of the government you will have to.

I think the real goal was to shut down the school, which I think was accomplished.
