An Inconvenient Truth
Today’s Guardian has an exclusive interview with Al Gore entitled “Born Again.” They also have an article about actual “born agains” entitled “Wing and a Prayer.” In context, the Gore article’s title makes sense. After reading “Wing and a Prayer,” though, I think it should have been entitled “An Inconvenient Truth: Religious People are Batscat.”
Here’s a quotation from an anonymous “Washington lobbyist,” on why he considers global warming a non-issue:
There may be a debate to be had but ... people can only sustain so many moral movements in their lifetime. Is God really going to let the Earth burn up?Oh, dear. And here’s “Brother Emmett,” sagely opining about child safety:
I would rather put my .38 pistol in a child's room than put a computer or a television set there. The devil's crowd is working how to get to your children.Wow. Just…wow.
