It has too many stupid Republicans and Christians living there, that's the matter. And, as Canadians, all we can do is make sure that sort of ignorance doesn't start oozing across the border.
Damn. Too late.
AFTERSNARK: This is the best part of the Kansas debacle:
In addition, the board rewrote the definition of science, so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena.
Excellent. So we have a bunch of scientifically illiterate, fundamentalist Christian yahoos who have decided, all on their own using their opposable thumbs, to redefine what "science" means. This opens up a world of corresponding possibilities, doesn't it?
I suggest that all of us atheists get together and redefine the phrase "fundamentalist Christianity". I suggest the word "dumbfuck" appear prominently and regularly.
It's only fair.
SNICKER: This morning's Globe had the best take on this with the simple headline, "Kansas devolves." Note particularly the comment from one William Stos from Ottawa who points how the same representatives of the sub-species Homo fundamentalus ignoramus who frothed and sputtered about the "redefinition" of marriage to include same-sex couples have no qualms whatsoever about "redefining" the basis for scientific investigation.
Good point, William.
