Today's APOD is breath-taking

Deadly bacteria from outer spaceSalmonella bacteria grown on the space shuttle displayed unusual genetic activity, becoming much more virulent. What, this is Andromeda Strain month?

2006 Texas State Republican Party Platform — For those conservative friends of mine who still think they're part of a rational political movement. Read the section on homosexuality (page 14) and contemplate the wholesale denial of rights and calls for continued criminalization by one of the largest state Republican parties in the country. And this is not the most batshit GOP platform out there, either.

"We support the traditional definition of marriage as a God–ordained, legal and moral commitment only between a natural man and a natural woman"

"Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God"

... So apparently as part of the official Republican platform, you can't be an atheist?

"We oppose the legalization of sodomy."

... given that "sodomy" is not defined, and often used to include not only same-sex sexual activity but oral or anal sex between a man and a woman, and even sometimes masturbation, I wonder specifically what all want to outlaw when they talk about "sodomy".

re: TX GOP Platform document...

Yeesh. Even for a religious guy like me, that contained entirely too many mentions of divinity mixing with government for my comfort.
