Rep. Ben Bridges (R-Cleveland, GA) is in trouble.
A recent memo
from his office -- one circulated this week
by Warren Chisum
, a ranking member of the Texas state legislature -- has caught the attention of the Anti-Defamation League
. They are not pleased
. And they're not alone
. Why? Because in his memo, Rep. Bridges
of a perennial anti-evolution education bill
in the Georgia State House -- claims that "so-called ’secular evolution science’ is the Big Bang, 15-billion-year, alternate ‘creation scenario’ of the Pharisee Religion."
And that's not all. It would appear that Rep. Bridges is getting his information (and templates
for his legislation
) from www.fixedearth.com
-- a website dedicated not only to the removal of pro-evolution education from schools, but to the idea that "[t]he Earth is not rotating...nor is it going around the sun." Because you see, it's all part of the Copernican Deception
, a massive conspiracy propagated by Christian Zionists
and ... Madonna

Kabbalah is the new Scientology
"The Rav" - Born Feivel Gruberger in Brooklyn, was an insurance salesman before leaving his first wife and children to reinvent himself as a modern spiritual guru. He runs the Los Angeles-based Kabbalah Centre. When Berg blesses ordinary spring water, it apparently becomes "infused with kabbalistic meditation . . . for healing, well-being and rejuvenation" - qualities that are neatly marketed in his exclusive make-up range, which includes a "restoring night cream" at £80 and a £91 eye-cream.

~Did I ever tell you I'm your hero? I am the subtext beneath your sling
[Not work-safe. Don't read it out loud, anyway.]
strives for intelligent, what about full-on intellectual erotica? I submit Foucault's Pendulous...
at Suspect Thoughts
. Not – at all – to be confused with Foucault's Pendulum
, which oddly enough has its own bit of intellectual erotica in it that ties together the Khaballah, new pregnancy, and a woman telling her husband he's being an idiot, all at the same time.
