[links] Link salad, Tuesday goes to Mars

Cult/Sect Overview — Helpful information from the Southern Baptist Convention. I didn't know Unitarians were a cult.

The Liar, the Switch and the Wardrobe — Police find secret passage through a wardrobe to Darwin's hideout. (More on the undead canoeist.)

Colon cleansing testimonials — You probably don't want to click on this. Really. You have been warned.

Christian biologist fired for beliefs, suit says — "The case underscores tension between scientists, who see creationist views as anti-science, and evangelical Christians who argue that protections of religious freedom enshrined in the U.S. Constitution extend to scientific settings." Um, yeah. And my religion tells me the Earth is flat. NASA had better hire me as a mission planner!

Huckabee Hides His Full Gospel? — "Now that he has his moment in the political spotlight, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee does not want his days at the pulpit to be scrutinized." Yes, because only Democratic candidates should be subject to intense scrutiny of every public and private statement ever made in their lives.

A rather nice review of Mainspring Powell's | Amazon ]

Bush loses ground with military families — Wow, even military families don't support the troops. (At least, as supporting the troops is defined by Your Republican Party.) Those facts sure are biased, aren't they?

I'm not sure if I should be surprised or not. (From slwhitman via lordofallfools.) ETA: The specific reference is at the end of the article, on page 2.
