Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Dumbass Quote of the Day

Texas BOE wingnut Cynthia Dunbar’s prayer — yes, prayer — before the board voted to distort American history:

Whether we look to the first charter of Virginia, or the charter of New England or the Charter of Massachusetts Bay, or the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, the same objective is present: a Christian land governed by Christian principles. I believe the entire Bill of Rights came into being because of the knowledge our forefathers had of the Bible and their belief in it. … I like to believe we are living today in the spirit of the Christian religion.

Then by all means, please name one thing in the Bill of Rights that has an analog in the Bible. Just one. Good luck. Video of this idiocy below the fold. And she seems to be unaware that those colonial chargers she cites were granted by King George, the man we revolted against to set up a religion-free government.
