Judge Jones & Jesus

Good week for "Jesus Week" here, what with the breaking news about Judge John Jones' decision in the Dover, PA, case brought by parents against the school board for insisting that "intelligent design" be mentioned alongside "the theory of evolution."

Actually, Jesus might not have a whole heck of a lot to say on the matter, seeing as he was a New Testament sort of guy, not all caught up in the (even in 30 AD) rather dated allegories of the Old Testament. But that wouldn't and WON'T stop his modern sheep from bleeting their brains out hoping to send us back to the dark ages, flat earth around which the sun revolves and all that. Jesus' humility seems rather passe among the proponents of ANTI-nature/ANTI-reason. They prefer a load of supernatural hokum and HUBRIS.

But praise the lord, and pass the ammunition.

Judge Jones' ruling is to ID what the Gettysburg Address was to war fatalities.

In a stroke of succinct genius (definitely a sentence intelligently designed), Judge Jones said: "The supernatural may be true, but it's not science." And he went on to say that things besides and beyond religion are moral and that the purpose of education is not to validate ignorance but to overcome it. Wow, and this from a Bush appointee!

Goodness gracious, now THAT'S a festivus for the rest of us.

And yes, this just in: Just like the rest of us, Judge Jones was also "creaded in God's image."
