"Creation Science?"
The Taxman Cometh

Now that George W. Bush has officially endorsed teaching "Creation Science" in public schools, along with the theory of evolution, it only makes sense to tax churches.

If ministers and church executive boards are, indeed, basing their weekly productions and pageants on science (and not faith), that's fine with me... as long as they pay their fair share of taxes.

Bush endorses teaching
`intelligent design'
theory in schools

Knight Ridder Newspapers

WASHINGTON - (KRT) - President Bush waded into the debate over evolution and "intelligent design" Monday, saying schools should teach both theories on the creation and complexity of life.

In a wide-ranging question-and-answer session with a small group of reporters, Bush essentially endorsed efforts by Christian conservatives to give intelligent design equal standing with the theory of evolution in the nation's schools. --snip--

Bush compared the current debate to earlier disputes over "creationism," a related view that adheres more closely to biblical explanations. As governor of Texas, Bush said students should be exposed to both creationism and evolution.

On Monday the president said he favors the same approach for intelligent design "so people can understand what the debate is about."

And here's my favorite part...

Bush, who leaves Tuesday for a monthlong stay at his Texas ranch, took questions from five Texas reporters at a conference table in the Roosevelt Room, just off the Oval Office. Looking relaxed and upbeat, he sipped on cola and chewed ice as he answered, deflected or bantered his way through questions on a host of topics.

He became most animated when pressed to say whether he personally would like to see Roe v. Wade overturned. Bush opposes abortion, except in cases of rape, incest or to save the mother's life, but he acknowledges that most Americans don't share his views. LINK

Look, we all know that George W. is only pandering to the party checkbooks.

The sad part? Fascist Fundies will now have to decide once and for all...

Is it faith, or is it science?

If they decide on science, let the debunking of the immaculate conception, the virgin birth, and the resurrection begin. That should make science classes interesting, to say the least.

And if it's science...

The taxman cometh, Preacher Man.

Truly heavy sigh.
