"When it comes to Red (and those like him), it’s tempting to say ‘Well, at least he’s honest,’ but I’m starting to not care anymore. Honesty does not excuse this. I don’t know if anything can."

"This is from a forum about herpetology, where people go to discuss the care of their exotic reptiles and amphibians. It is populated by professional herpetologists, biologists, zoologists, veterinarians, people who have kept herps for decades, and people who casually keep herps and come here for advice on taking care of them. Many members are from Europe and Australia.
"In one of the off topic threads, the subject of evolution was brought up and a 14 year old American (big surprise) said he didn’t believe in it.
"At first the reactions were pretty neutral, tinged with surprise. Then he dropped this little beauty and I lost it.
"That’s right, Darwin discovered Lucy 91 years after he died and toootaallly refuted her on his death bed.
"In other comments, this user bemoans the fact that prayer has been taken out of schools and that the world is conspiring against Christianity."
"I think the last few thousand years has proven otherwise."
"This isn’t explicitly religious, but I know for a fact Red is a Christian (his hatred of both ‘moral relativism’ and trans* individuals might make that obvious, though). The term "philistine" is so appropriate here."

Mormon Women Bare -

Some of you may have heard about the student who was assaulted and arrested at the University of Tennessee.
He was assaulted because a street preacher who regularly make appearances at the college had shut down an entire square of foot-traffic area and was screaming religiously-fueled hate at the students. It’s been reported that her screams have even caused professors to cancel classes because she is so disruptive.
The student in question reportedly rode his bicycle passed the cones of the shut-down area and said “Hey ma’am, if you’re trying to spread the good word, maybe you shouldn’t be telling everyone they’re sinners.” After this, campus police grabbed him off his bike, forced him to the ground, sprayed him with mace, and arrested him for inciting a riot.
This is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting. Please do something about it by signing this petition. We only need a few more signatures, so you can really make a difference!
Here’s an article on the story.
Thanks for your help!
