 Blind faith makes you a dumbass

Boy, talk about ideological blinders. During a visit to the library this summer, Jim Hertz and his wife, Jan, noticed the poster on a wall and were surprised to see the words "under God" omitted.

They contacted the library and were informed the poster was a historical document donated to the library before 1954, the year Congress approved adding "under God."

End of story, for most people. Not these dogmatic dumbasses.

Hertz said he, his wife and friends will attend the Thursday library board meeting to ask the board to either post a current copy or a note with the outdated pledge explaining why "under God" was omitted. If the board refuses to do either, he said he might run for the library board in the spring.

"We might put together a slate of candidates who will better reflect the wishes of the people of Frankfort," Hertz said. "It seems to me (library trustees) they are not meeting the wishes of the people by not posting a corrected copy of the Pledge of Allegiance. In my opinion, the board is not taking this very seriously."

Full story is here. If you know of any other recent attempts to rewrite history in a fundie-friendly way, please post them in the comments section.

And why should we be surprised anymore by the braying and neighing of religious fundamentalists?

Sounds like one more attempt to impose local theocracy on us all...
