Another dose of Martian awesome — Wow. Amazing stuff, from Bad Astronomy.

One for the conspiracy theorists: spell "ILLUMINATI" backwards and put .com at the end. Where does it go? — (Thanks to @juhasaarinen via @danjite.)

Media Picks On Poor Ugandan Christianstrying to keep Uganda's Christians from putting gays to death amounts to "imposing" on their rights -- not the right of gays not to be put to death, but the right of Christians to put them to death This effort was fanned by American Evangelical leaders, including the allegedly moderate Rick Warren. To my Christian friends: is this what you really want?

Northern Ireland in uproar over lawmaker's secret affair with teen — Ah, family values. As usual when moral rectitude is preached by conservatives, it means "for thee but not for me." (See the meme "the only moral abortion is my own" for a lot more on this tendency of conservatives to let themselves off the very same hooks on which they want to hang other people out to dry.)

The Conservative Case for Gay MarriageWhy same-sex marriage is an American value. Former Bush solicitor-general Ted Olsen goes way off the conservative reservation, expresses sanity and sticks to principles in direct contravention of 30 years of GOP politics. Starting countdown to Rush Limbaugh/Glenn Beck grovelfest. (Thanks to sheelangig.)

The conservative default position is always, "Do as we say, not as we do." Unfortunatly, the Democravens are often too gutless to use this political weapon given them by the RepubliKans with the severity it demands.

And, yeah, he'll be apologizing to the shrieking Hate Wing of the GOP in due time. It is ever thus.

That conservative guy reminds me of one of my friends in school. When the class divided itself up to have pretend Democratic and Republican National Conferences, the particular friend was selected to head the Republicans. At one point, he burst into our (the Democrats) meeting to vent about how hard it was to get his side to NOT use the Bible as their justification for their political platform.
