Religious Right on the War Path

Things aren't looking good for those of us who believe in old-fashioned secular society. The Republican candidate for a Nevada Senate seat is on record as saying separation of church and state is unconstitutional, and instead of being ridiculed into oblivion, she's actually tied in the polls with Harry Reid. In Delaware another Senate candidate has views that could have come straight from Archbishop James Ussher.

And in recent months growing numbers of mouth-breathing morons--um, I mean, Americans--are concerned about the President's religion.

Meanwhile the board that writes high school textbook standards in one of the country's largest markets has determined that high school history classes will downplay Thomas Jefferson, play up Phyllis Schlafly and emphasize the Christian values of the Founding Fathers.

So the Christian Taliban has declared jihad on Congress and on textbooks. What's next? I've heard that Christian right-wingers are going to follow the Texas Board of Education lead in regard to movies: popular and classic films are going to be re-written so they'll provide Biblical messages.

The scripts for the following films have already been written and shooting is about to begin:

Twelve Angry Disciples
The Silence of the Sacrificial Lambs
It's A Sinful, Sinful, Sinful, Sinful World
Francis Ford Coppola's God the Father
The Third Wise Man
Citizen Cain
Apocalypse Soon
I Know What You Did Last Supper

I have also heard that earnest fundamentalist scriptwriters have just begun work on a bio pic about the Virgin Mary (Knocked Up).
