I saw it. Kind of disappointing, but I guess that was because my viewing of it followed on the heels of the astonishing movie, The God Who Was Not There, which almost had me fainting it was so anti-Christian. Yes, fainting. I still have a Christoholic's desire to drink the blood, translating to shock at anyone's attack on the faith I was brought up on. Somehow, I don't think viewing Angels and Demons would produce the same effect, though the New Yorker indicates it has the Vatican's panties in a bunch. Maher doesn't say much more than he does on his HBO show, which I canceled recently since I didn't like paying about $13 a month to watch that one show, nothing else on HBO catching my fancy lately.

Has anyone seen "Religulous"?

I'm in Odessa...I'm actually right across the street from Permian High of Fri. Night Lights. Yes, this area is pretty pathetic and I think most people can't wait to get away. I've been trying my whole life and have made it a few times, but it's like a vacuum...the place sucks you back in. Unfortunately, there are few non-religious guys here either, so I had to marry one who doesn't care if I'm an atheist.
BTW, many religious girls here will do much more than their religion preaches......

Not to forget, Austin, George W. Bush was born in Midland and grew up there, ascending to the height of cheerleader for the high school football team. Friday Night lights and Sunday morning mumbo jumbo: he also says he was first exposed to religion there. That means he was indoctrinated into the Cult of the Talking Snake with its concomitant notion that all women are evil because they led the first male into original sin. Not only are religious girls not "cute," they believe in the Tooth Fairy and practice abstinance (although some will give you a b.j. because this "isn't sex"). You just haven't tried hard enough.

You know, calling the office of your local Senator is much more effective than emailing. They must log EACH phone call in their office log, but an email can quietly be deleted. The phone rings and rings and rings....learned that tactic from my teacher's organization :) Just call a BUNCH!!

Thank you.


Do what you think proper...but please do something!

I sent my e-mail off, but I doubt it will do any good in this bastion of ignorance that we live in.

But but but...I AM a Democrat and a liberal. In fact, I am a borderline socialist and leaning in the direction of anarcho-syndicalist. Of course I find Don McLeroy objectionable, but do I really have to hide my true colors in order to complain of his run for a second term? And, hey, what do you expect in a state that put both George W. Bush and Rick "Big Hair" Perry in the Governor's Mansion?

The Texas Senate will soon be voting on the confirmation of young-earth creationist Don McLeroy for a second term as chair of the Texas State Board of Education.

It is imperative that this nomination be stopped! Please contact your Senator (Find him/her at and urge a vote against confirmation. My email to my Senator follows:

Senator Harris,

I am neither a Democrat nor a liberal.

Having said that, I must strongly urge you to vote to reject the nomination of Mr. McLeroy for another term as Chair of the SBOE.

Mr. McLeroy has not only made Texas a point of derision throughout our nation, he has done serious and potentially long-lasting damage to our students and future.

Texas already ranks low nationally in math and science. Mr. McLeroy's continued attempts to subvert science and impose his own particular world view on science teaching is both destructive and corrosive.

Please vote against confirmation.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my view.
