I SWEAR!

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070202.htm The first Muslim ever elected to the U.S. Congress, Representative-elect Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota), has decided he wants to take his oath of office on the Koran, rather than the Bible. This has mightily pissed off, freaked out and generally discombobul...

AARRGGHH!

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm Somehow, via a devious process known only to the cybergremlins who have bedeviled me from the first time I (with fear and trembling) interfaced with a computer, I sent my previous message before it was complete. Obviously. Not that it matters in the Grea...

It's About Time!

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm A documentary about Harlan? Splendiferous! Should it reach a silver screen out here in the Holy Hinterlands I will be the first in line. Is there a title? If not, I facetiously suggest BUGFUCK! (Not that I mean this to in any way reflect upon Harlan's st...

The Sadness of King George

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm Yesterday was proof that the bad guys don't ALWAYS win. That said, I can't call the conquest of the House--and maybe the Senate--a Democratic victory as much as a Republican loss. The scandals in the Republican Congress, coupled with the fall from grace ...

At Last!

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm The fateful day has at last arrived. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, holding tight to my rabbit's foot and four-leaf clover, and hoping that the Democrats will at least be able to take the House. Early returns indicate that Republican Sen. Rick Santorum ...

The Idea Factory

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm forced sex and vagina pics: Thanks for reminding us why humanity created punctuation marks. Moderator: can you track down these culprits and perhaps cause their computers to explode? I'm not advocating that they be killed mind you; no, only that they suf...

Saint, or Son of Sodom?

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm I'm ALMOST starting to feel sorry for the Religious Right. First, several of their beloved Republican legislators are led astray by that latter-day Pied Piper, Jack Abramoff, and even that Tribune of the Trinity, Tom DeLay, is forced to resign from Congr...

I Hope They Nail The Bitch!

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm I know it's not nice to call a female a "bitch," but there are some for whom the tag is appropriate. I refer here to Ann Coulter, she-wolf of the Rabid Right, who is apparently facing some serious legal problems. According to an AP story I read today on ...

Another Signpost on the Road to Perdition

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm I was perusing The Huffington Post today when I read an article by Bill Maher. At first I thought it was a joke--but no, it's the real deal. Seems the law 'n order folks in Levy County, Florida, have taken to drug testing library volunteers. The voluntee...

Hither and Yawn

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm John wrote, "There is no doubt that this particular forum is dedicated almost exclusively to left-wing (as opposed to the evil right wing ideology constantly decried here) thinking: Bush is evil, Republicans are evil, and every single conservative commen...

The Rant

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm Harlan, while reading your "rant," I was reminded of an essay you wrote for PLAYBOY back in the eighties, in defense of the tumultuous sixties. I was inspired by that then, and I'm inspired by this now. I was a little too young to indulge in all the poli...

This and That

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm Carstonio: Yes, there are two creation myths in GENESIS. There are also two different stories of Noah boarding his ark with clean and unclean animals (dinosaurs?), and two different sets of The Ten Commandments as well (see EXODUS chapters 20 and 34). No...

The Faith of a Heretic

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm The above is the title of a great book by the late philosopher Walter Kaufmann. I imagine it's out of print, but it's well worth looking for. Carstonio: I have mixed feelings about Madalyn Murray O'Hair. I certainly admired her courage regarding the Supr...

Dawkins on Religion

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20061122.htm Carstonio: You made a relevant point when you wrote: "When prominent rationalists profess anything that sounds like atheism, it gives the hardcore fundamentalists more PR ammunition." Dawkins addresses this matter in THE GOD DELUSION, and (as I interpret...
