Creationists drown puppies!

In addition to being a contemptible ghoul who uses a tragedy to attack an unrelated concept, evolutionary biology (we are all on the same page, right? The evidence so far is that the Virginia Tech killer was a mentally ill young man with a confused Christ complex, not a ruthless atheist proponent of evolution who was following the advice of Charles Darwin’s ghost), this “full time creation evangelist” Grady McMurtry makes a revealing admission:

Therefore, he [McMurtry] asserts, people should not be surprised when mass shootings occur, such as the one on the Blacksburg university campus on Monday. “And at Virginia Tech, what do we have?” he asks rhetorically. “We have a person who, unfortunately, thought that humans had no more value than cats and dogs — and unfortunately, I think, probably felt the same way about themselves.”

The creationist continues explaining his premise. “And so what happens? If we are nothing but thinking animals, [and] if you have excess people, then you can just put them in a bag, throw them in the river the way you would too many kittens or too many puppies.”

What was that last line? Being an evolutionist means you’re as casual about human deaths as creationists are about killing kittens and puppies?

CREATIONISTS DROWN PUPPIES!!?!

Puppies?

I dare not contemplate what they would do to the cute little ducklings. And think of the bunnies! Dear god, don’t let the creationists near the adorable baby bunnies!

I have to go lie down, I’m so distraught.

    It is in cases like this I wish scifi stories were true. Because I know some animals that I would have no Tribble to sic on the creos…

    saving Republicans’ behind

    I must go and fetch more coffee, since my first thought upon reading this was that they were acting out a ‘No Republicans Left Behind’ policy.

    Typical emotional immaturity. It is similar to one discovering fire and then concluding that “now we must go around burning people”. To understand something that is indifferent does not immediately mean to embrace that discovery.

    oops. NOW you tell me.

    guess I’ll return that new flamethrower I just bought.

    *sigh*
