Your day in religious wackiness

So let's see, first we have the Pope basically advocating murder by going to Africa and saying condoms are a bad idea and people should just practice abstinence instead. Because there aren't a half million studies out there saying abstinence programs are disastrous and never work or anything.

HIV is killing a continent. You fight it with whatever works. If condoms work, you use them. Saying not to is beyond idiocy.

Not that I've ever been a tremendous fan of the Catholic church, but this pope really does suck.

Next up....I enjoyed this header from Warren Ellis' blog - "Canada’s Sense Of Polite Superiority Over The US Suddenly Evaporates", and he then linked to a story about how our federal minister responsible for science is possibly a creationist. Now, Gary Goodyear is saying that of course he believes in evolution. And perhaps he does and this is all just a tempest in a tea pot. And lord knows my alarms went off because I do have the special hatred for creationists.

I really do hope it's nothing but something blown out of proportion. Because really, if it's proven that Canada's science minister is anti-science and a creationist, well, bring on the next federal election and put his face front and centre.

Finally, this is actually a fake christian crazy website (the "Find Sexy Gay Singles in your area" ad might be a tip off. But in a day of religious wackiness, this at least made me laugh.

Do you ever get the feeling that Chinese toy makers are just fucking with us sometimes?

Another tip is that photo turned up on Failblog.org the other day. Also, no one is named Tyson Bowers III, not even a fundie.
