Louisiana has passed essentially the same law that the Supreme Court vacated in 1987 in the same state. They'll be sued (again). They'll lose (again). The taxpayers of Louisiana will pay the tab (again).

I'm so glad I don't live in a stupid jerkwater state like Louisiana. But I'm very glad that Republican Governor Bobby Jindal, who has a degree in biology from Brown University, was stupid enough to sign the measure into law for political reasons.

The GOP is grooming Jindal for a Presidential or Vice-Presidential run in 2016, as an Indian-American answer to an African-American president and increasingly diverse American voters. I can't wait for Jindal's opponents to slap him around for this blatant and wasteful act of political pandering.

One would think these assholes would get the message, but no.  We have to fight the same battles against school prayer, creationism, etc., over and over and over again.

I don’t know what’s worse, that somebody this vacuous is in public office and in a position to oversee education, or that he has enough supporters to be voted into that position.

"We have to fight the same battles against school prayer, creationism, etc., over and over and over again."

There have been a few of us that have attempted to link religion with madness. This can be considered a 'turn around as fair play' moment, since theists have attempted to make this point for atheists.

Many of the attempts at 'returning to the good old days', have been made via the large theist activist groups, where they have cobbled moneys together for their continued operations, and attempted a legal challenge to what they see as atheist/secular over reach. Without going after these organizations, we will continue to be faced with this cyclical challenge, however mis-guided we might consider it.

We have a rather large dog run here, where our puppies do their business, during good days and bad. I guess I should start checking for the 'mushroom people' that might come up from the soil this next spring. A 'Bunny FUFU', moment on a warm spring day. I expect our puppies would hardly notice the difference....LOL

I haven't seen the video yet, but I gather it's a secret Republican plan to create more Republicans "from scratch."

Do the citizens of Louisiana - which, by the way, is a beautiful state - really know what idiots like this and their "Creationist Law" is doing to the national image of their state? Or do they even care?

Sadly Arch, there seems to be a paradox in human cognition, we can have some type of free will, extream ignorance and some degree of power.

You also might have just recognized another characteristic of political power, that many people link politicians and power with a blessing from 'God'. We sort of get the politics we deserve if we are not careful.

In that part of the country a northerner like me can sometimes feel he's in a different country entirely, similar to the U.S. he's familiar with, but different. Kind of like visiting Canada, only less pleasant. Now if only the Canadians had a cuisine. THAT the southeast does have, esp. Nawlins.
