Ben Stein, The Propagandist (or Arrogant Prophet?)

I don't like to ridicule people. Well, not unless they ridicule, first. I try to avoid it because it's rarely productive, except maybe when it's like preaching that excites the choir. Sometimes Ben Stein's angry preaching gets me excited.

Peanut Gallery 1 - The I.Q. Test (Yellow Card)

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

I was a Christian. Not just a Christian, but a Fundamentalist. Not just a Fundamentalist, but a Creationist. The whole 9-yards.

Chick Publications: "Witnessing" Made Easy

[Edited 11-21-09, 4:11PM: I realized hours after posting this how inappropriate it was of me to hotwire those images. But! I will provide links.]



I have an easy, convenient, and enjoyable job that unfortunately has a single, glaring flaw - it's like a watering hole for the religious right.
