My Biology teacher asked us our opinion about this. We spent about 40 minutes telling eachother about our opinions.
That's a good teacher.

Is good sense returning to the electorate?
That presumes the electorate had good sense to which it might return. Heck, I'd be happy if they just had common sense, but that has become an oxymoron.

Pat Robertson? The same guy that announced that God had told him to run for President in 1988? He got his ass kicked in the first primary. That God guy, he sure has a sense of humor!

Pat prophesized that after Orlando voted for gay rights for city employees, that Florida would be HIT BY A HURRICANE! AND HE WAS RIGHT! Imagine that - a HURRICANE hitting Florida!


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Hey - here's a laugh - Rick Santorum, top Senate religious fascist running for re-election in Pennslyvania now decides maybe Intelligent Design shouldn't be taught in schools after all! Do ya think this school board getting kicked out of office helped him change his mind, or what!

Santorum: Don't put intelligent design in classroom after all
Bill Vidonic - Times Staff
11/13/2005

The Times/BILL VIDONIC
BEAVER FALLS - U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum said Saturday that he doesn't believe that intelligent design belongs in the science classroom.

Santorum's comments to The Times are a shift from his position of several years ago, when he wrote in a Washington Times editorial that intelligent design is a "legitimate scientific theory that should be taught in the classroom."

But on Saturday, the Republican said that, "Science leads you where it leads you."

Santorum was in Beaver Falls to present Geneva College President Kenneth A. Smith with a $1.345 million check from federal funds for renovations that include the straightening and relocation of Route 18 through campus.

Santorum's comments about intelligent design come at a time when the belief that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power, an alternative to the theory of evolution, has come under fire on several fronts.

A federal trial just wrapped up in which eight families sued Dover Area School District in eastern Pennsylvania. The district's school board members tried to introduce teaching intelligent design into the classroom, but the families said the policy violated the constitutional separation of church and state.

No ruling has been issued on the trial, but Tuesday, all eight Dover School Board members up for re-election were ousted by voters, leading to a fiery tirade by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson.

Robertson warned residents, "If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected him from your city."

Santorum said flatly Saturday, "I disagree. I don't believe God abandons people," and said he has not spoken to Robertson about his comments.

Though Santorum said he believes that intelligent design is "a legitimate issue," he doesn't believe it should be taught in the classroom, adding that he had concerns about some parts of the theory.

Earlier this summer, President Bush said he favored teaching intelligent design in the classroom.

With Santorum running for re-election next year, and with Bush and the Republican Party taking some significant hits in public confidence in recent months, Santorum insisted he is not trying to distance himself from Bush.

Santorum said he still supports President Bush, even though on Friday, he said in Philadelphia that mistakes had been made in the Iraq war, and that at least a portion of the blame lies with the White House.

Saturday, Santorum said of Bush, "I don't agree with everything he does," but said that overall, he considers Bush a good president and that he has "done a lot" for the country and for Santorum himself.

On the Iraq war, Santorum said he's talked to troops who have returned from overseas and that they've told him U.S. troops have had to change tactics based on what the enemy has done.

Santorum said that no matter how the war is going, the country should continue to support the troops.
