    The fundamentals' current dilemma is the inevitable result of putting all one's intellectual eggs into any religion's basket.

    Enough fossil fuel remains on Earth to warm it 6 degrees C by 2100 AD if it is all used. A +6 C planet will only sustain half a billion humans. Human population will rise to 9 billion by 2050. Any questions?

      If being gay is a choice, that means that it can be learned, or taught, as a choice.

      Which means that kids can learn about the "homosexual lifestyle" and choose it.

      All kids. Even Fundy kids.

      That is the core of their fears. Gay teachers. And it all comes from believing what the Bible says about homosexuality.

      Funny though that it's all in the Old Testament. I don't recall Jesus (the guy who hung out with twelve men in the garden) saying anything about it. For the life of me, I don't understand why "Christians" read the OT as anything other than historical tribal stories. If Jesus was the Messiah, he ended the age of the OT, so if you are a "Christian" you should only follow the NT.

      Oh, right....help the poor and sick...forgiveness...humff.
