Stupidity Never Ceases

MoviesYeah, I know this is old news, but a public school teacher showing portions of The Passion of the Christ — a bootleg copy, no less — to sixth graders without parental notification? Hell, I don’t care if there was notification. In what country does this self-righteous bozo think he’s living? I’m still not commenting on the content of the movie itself, but how stupid does this guy have to be to think it’d be all right to show any R-rated, overtly religious movie to elementary school students? Even if you’re not gonna fire the guy for violating the separation of church and state, fire the guy for sheer idiocy. And don’t give me the excuse that it’s not about religion, it’s about history. The events depicted in this movie (my judgment being based on the source material) are only “history” if you’re a Christian who interprets the Gospels literally; not to say that’s not a valid religious interpretation, but it’s certainly not consensus history by any stretch of the imagination.

Speaking of stupidity... Dennis Hastert is demanding an apology from John Kerry for his inadvertently-overheard comment the other day: “Don’t worry, man. We’re going to keep pounding. Let me tell you. We are just beginning to fight here. These guys are the most crooked, you know, lying group I have ever seen. It’s scary.” At least Kerry is standing his ground. Since when are people expected to apologize for telling the truth?
