“If you choose to believe that virgins can give birth, that human beings can live to be 900 years old, and other sundry literal "truths" in the Good Book, then it is probably easy to believe that people who are physically attracted to members of their own sex are damned.”

    Astute observation. The mushy brain of the true believer is easily influenced to believe anything as long as it it couched in the paradigm of their faith.

    But Kent Hovind explained the whole age/flood/fossil thing. Hasn’t anyone been listening? Maybe when he gets out of jail for tax evasion he’ll clear all this up for you godless heathens. Just you wait! We’re gonna find a fossil Homo in the cretacious. And yes, gay people are damned…..good dressers!

    People who believe absurdities can believe anything. Therefore they cannot be trusted with anything else. And yet most American politicians and many British politicians fall in with the virgin-birth farce. Why do they get elected?
    At least in Britain there’s quite a number of politicians who openly declare themselves to be atheistic freethinkers.
