If this ain’t satire, it sure should be.

I came across Blogs 4 Brownback (via Jones Town) and have been alternating between laughing and cringing. I laugh because of the sheer inanity of it all. I cringe because I’m not sure if these people are serious or not.

The best post is definitely “Heliocentrism is an atheist doctrine.” That’s right; all that crap those science teachers have been shoveling you about the Earth orbiting the Sun is a deception to take you away from Christianity. A brilliant excerpt:

However, for both moral and theological reasons, we should always bear in mind that the Earth does not move. If it moved, we would feel it moving. That’s called empiricism, the experience of the senses. Don’t take my word for it, or the evidence of your own senses, Copernicans. There’s also the Word of the Lord: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.” (1 Chronicles 16:30)

There’s a post called “Profiles in Courage: Kirk Cameron” about the guy who brought us the Banana Argument for theism.

Then there are posted lauding Paul Wolfowitz and arguing that pornographers deserve the death penalty. They question whether anyone has ever flown in outer space, or whether satellites are all just a hoax. In answering the question of why Southern students do poorly in standardized testing, we get the following wisdom:

Northeastern students do better because the tests involve Copernicanism, Darwinism, and other deceptions of the International Leftist Movement. Students in other parts of the country don’t learn as much of this nonsense; thus, although they are actually better-educated, and for less money, too, they fare poorly on tests involving esoteric knowledge of modern pseudoscience and homosexual-influenced literature.

And finally, a little gem from the sidebar:

If this is satire, it’s the best thing I’ve seen since Shelley the Republican. It’s only unfortunate that they don’t spend more time talking about Sam Brownback. Now that would be funny.

    I’m almost convinced it’s a joke. He has a link to Jeff Gannon’s website. Brownback is a stringent homo-phobe. I seriously doubt he’d want someone who supports him linking to a “queer”.

    Also, the right wing blogs I looked at were more than willing to accept its validity without a single question.

    Apparently Brownback is not too popular with many Reps for some reason. I know he wields a lot of power in the Senate, and is considered one of the Christian Right’s “boys”.

    Thanks for the link

    Thanks for the link to Jones Town. The link at the bottom is to one of the right wing blogs. Sorry.

    I guess a flat earth is next on the agenda. And out with gravity for sure. Maybe they could call it “Intelligent Falling”. http://www.theonion.com/content/node/39512
