Wonkette - ‘Bible Man’ Banned From Tenn. Grade Schools. Townfolk Turn Other Cheek, Just Kidding
The Religious right is so incredibly stupid. It takes incredible ignorance of our constitution, not to understand how this is unconstitutional, and they acted like spoiled brats when they were challenged on it. Also Bible Man has to be one of the most pathetic superheroes ever. The Joker, Lex Luther, Doctor Doom, or Magneto could easily take him out before he could even quote a single Bible verse. Only the religious right would think of him as a “superhero.”
Doktor Zoom talks about one of the dumbest things I’ve heard about in a long time.
Cry for the poor oppressed Christians of Grundy County, Tennessee, will you please, O Wonkers? Lo, they are sore afraid, and most put upon, for an HERETIC is amongst them, using arcane magicks (the Constitution of the United States) and consorting with Devilish Forces (the Freedom From Religion Foundation) to withhold from the public schools the Word Of God! Which is to say, some old evangelist fart calling himself “the Bible Man” won’t be allowed to hold taxpayer-funded revival meetings at the elementary schools anymore, because of some stupid thing about it being unconstitutional. Happily, it all worked out for the best because the good Christian townspeople have figured out the identity of the troublemaking atheist mom who complained to the FFRF, and they’ve been threatening her with violent retribution, seeing as how God Himself hasn’t gotten around to smiting the godless bitch yet. But they know that’s what He’d want.
(Also, excuse us, reporter lady at 26 seconds in, it’s not so much that the Bible Man’s message is unconstitutional as that having it as part of the school day is. Yes, even if the heathen children eventually find out they’re allowed to go do something else while the good kids get their souls saved.)
