Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

Every now and then I will read a quote in an article that just appalls me with its appalling badness. Usually, these are quotes from religious fundamentalists. This is one of those quotes:

“This decision is a poster child for a half-century secularist reign of terror that’s coming to a rapid end with Justice Roberts and soon-to-be Justice Alito,” said Richard Land, who is president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and is a political ally of White House adviser Karl Rove. “This was an extremely injudicious judge who went way, way beyond his boundaries — if he had any eyes on advancing up the judicial ladder, he just sawed off the bottom rung.”

The “secularist reign of terror”? Who do these people think they are? What are the judicial “boundaries” that Jones supposedly crossed. How ignorant can people be? Well, at least the ruling was sane…

Advocates of ‘Intelligent Design’ Vow to Continue Despite Ruling
