Now, this frightens me.
Last night, PBS aired the program on NOVA, Judgement Day -- Intelligent Design on Trial.
Beginning November 16, the entire show will be available online here.
The town of Dover, Pennsylvania was torn apart by the intrusion of religion into the classroom by the attempt to force the presentation of Creationism -- **ahem**-- 'Intelligent Design' in the 9th grade science classroom.
Witnesses received hate mail during the trial.
The judge [a Bush appointee (was he later fired by Gonzales? I wonder)] received death threats after finding that a majority of the members of the school board had attempted to circumvent the First Amendment of the Constitution in order to force their religious beliefs to be taught in the public school. He and his family [including his young children] were placed under protective surveillance for fear of what the Christians of the community might do to them.
It was also proved that a number of Board Members committed perjury during the trial.
Pat Robertson publicly wished a natural calamity of some sort upon the town of Dover. I wonder if he prayed that one might happen?
During the NOVA presentation The Wedge Strategy which bewails the removal of God from our culture was outlined. I noticed that the people who claim that our society is falling apart as a result of the removal of God from our culture are backed by the very people who sent those hate mails, who made the death threats and who [in the person of Pat Robertson] wished a natural disaster upon the town.
A 'Wedge Strategy' indeed.
Funny, I don't see the 'Godless Liberals' engaging in such tactics.
In the final moments of the program, the founder of The Wedge Strategy admitted defeat THIS time and vowed to continue the battle to roll the clock back to medieval times.
God help us.
