I'm from Missouri

This site is named for the famous statement of US Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver from Missouri : "I`m from Missouri -- you'll have to show me." This site is dedicated to skepticism of official dogma in all subjects. Just-so stories are not accepted here. This is a site where controversial subjects such as evolution theory and the Holocaust may be freely debated.

My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

Darwinist bigotry

The Darwinist website Red State Rabble made the following comment about Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn's criticism of the censorship of questioning of Darwinism:

As a former Catholic who grew up in the largely Protestant Midwest, I'm surprised that the cardinal has aligned himself with right-wing fundamentalist forces who believe the Pope is the whore of Babylon and that Catholics, like Jews and Muslims, will be consigned to hell.

I wonder how the cardinal will feel when the fundamentalists begin agitating to teach those timeless truths to young Catholics in public schools.

Red State Rabble must not know that ever since the advent of the Abortion Holocaust, and the continued escalation of the culture wars, Catholics and non-Catholics have found much common ground with each other. Of course, there are still a few non-Catholics who are rabid anti-Catholic bigots. But not nearly as many as before.

This is very true. The Red State Rabble not only showed bigotry but also showed profound ignorance. Once upon a time, Protestants persecuted Catholics in the USA -- in fact, in the 1840's and 1850's, there was a political party, the "Know Nothing" Party, that was dedicated to opposing Catholics -- but I have never heard a fundy preacher today attack the Catholic church. Another area where Catholics and fundies have common ground today is the issue of gay rights. In fact, Episcopalian congregations in Virginia actually voted to leave the American branch of the church and switch to the Nigerian branch because of differences on the gay rights issue. Also, fundies are strong supporters of Israel.

You need to listen more. The folks at Liberty College (University?) in Virginia require a declaration of faith that includes the statement that the pope is the or an anti-Christ. Feel the love yet?
