The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

It's come to this has it

So now we're book-burners.Or would-be book-burners at any rate.

A friend on facebook recently asked "How much dumber can America get?"

I didn't have the heart to tell him.

American Family Association Radio host Bryan Fischer wants the U.S. Army to "be fair" and let the wingnut in Florida burn the same number of Quran's that they burned bibles last year in Afghanistan. No matter that recruiting Afghan's to Christianity is forbidden by the Army, no matter that this soldier violated that rule. And certainly no mention of asking the army to stop being hypocritical and firing some soldiers under DADT while not firing others.

The price of narcissism.

The American Family Association has also apparently conveniently forgotten that teeny little provision in the first amendment that says "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion." cause they think Muslims shouldn't be allowed to immigrate nor build any mosques in the country. I imagine if they were in charge there'd be internment camps again. Which, of course, were so charming the first time around.

And so it goes:
