Listening to echoes of Billy Boys BB sized brain rolling around in that box car head gets to be too much. Today Show? Have they no character? “Next up, a large putrid bowl of Billy O Busshead. Steaming.”

Did Bill-O have a book to sell?

The Goddess wouldn’t mind at all.

It’s laughable to me hearing O’Reilly and Stein try to pass themselves off as pious, god-fearing people when it’s obvious to anyone that these guys are just hacks. It’s also real sad that Stein and O’Reilly, a Jew and Catholic respectively are spouting off that Judeo-Christian nonsense, if those two had any sense of perspective, they’d know that Judeo-Christian was very a long time defined as Protestant only.

As long as that moar religion in public life is purely Christian, they’re all for it. Therein lies the problem.

Do we have Ben Stein’s opinion on teaching about Jesus in schools?
I thought not.

Meanwhile, is there any evidence that more religious people are more law abiding, more industrious, or kinder?
I thought not.

Also, too, please explain why having been raised to a nonreligious adulthood in a nonreligious family, I’ve been faithfully married to the same man for well over 3 decades, never gotten so much as a traffic ticket and raised 2 good, atheist kids to be contributing members of society.

I’ll wait for the answer…

These guys are such idiots.

Courtroom friezes: The South Wall Frieze includes figures of lawgivers from the ancient world and includes Menes, Hammurabi, Moses, Solomon, Lycurgus, Solon, Draco, Confucius, and Augustus. The North Wall Frieze shows lawgivers from the Middle Ages on and includes representations of Justinian, Muhammad, Charlemagne, John of England, Louis IX of France, Hugo Grotius, Sir William Blackstone, John Marshall, and Napoleon. The Moses frieze depicts him holding the Ten Commandments, although only commandments six through ten, usually considered the more secular commands, are visible. Further, Moses’ beard obscures some of the words so that instead of reading “Thou Shalt Not Steal”, it says “Steal”, and similarly appears to command viewers to kill and commit adultery.

Note that there’s no mention of Jesus (a.s.)—I wonder what that means? Hmm, the sculptor who carved the friezes was named Adolph A. Weinman (PDF). Jewish? If so, I’m sure there there are some ugly conspiracy theories there.

Oh, and what about The Apotheosis of Washington painted on the dome of the Capitol rotunda? It practically deifies George Washington and has him surrounded by figures form classical mythology, so maybe we should follow that?

Its because you live in accordance with the Judeo-Christian culture you belong to. Otherwise you would be constrained by nothing except your animalistic desire to rape and murder every living being you meet.///

It won’t be long before the GOP sponsors The Apotheosis of the Kochs, our divine job creators.

I read somewhere that the Judeo in Judeo-Christian is like the Roebuck in Sears-Roebuck.

Two words: prayer closets.

Just like, say, the Hindus did before they heard about the correct religion?

Thanks for explaining it so clearly. ;)

Having encountered it, I think that would be a spectacularly bad idea.

That was one scary place.

Merely a claim for fundies to go “See, we’re not Anti-Semites.”

I can’t imagine a worse spokesperson for “Judeo-Christian” values than O’Really?

Whenever I have one of these discussions with a wingnut I start with asking “Did the concepts of “Democracy,” “Voting,” “Ethics,” and “Republic” come from the bible, or from pre-christian pagan Greece and Rome?” Since the roots words and origins of all of those came from Greece ( and there are both secular and non secular pre-christian cognates and variants to those in the East as well…) I have them totally dished from the top of the conversation.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
