Did you hear about the dad who was upset that his daughter’s teacher showed An Inconvenient Truth in class? He feels that there should be an opposing view offered, and in this hilarious interview with The Daily Show’s Jason Jones he gives one. Crooks and Liars has the clip. Go watch it….
Now that you’re back I have to tell you, if I didn’t have friends and family in my life who are decent, church-going Christians, I’d assume that all religious folks were nuts like this guy. It’s hard to stay neutral about religion when so many folks are small-minded, mean, and creepy about their beliefs. Luckily, I do know some wonderful people who are not creepy, so I can’t make sweeping generalizations. Still, there are moments when I wish the Rapture that all these folks are devoutly planning on would happen, so they’d all just go away. The rest of us could get on with saving this lovely planet.
