Book Burning Twenty-first Century Style - and more

The UK Religious Intelligence Website reports a disturbing instance of book burning. What printed work could be so offensive that it must be completely silenced? Political ideology? Scientific works that contradict ideological prejudices? And what organization would oversee the snuffing out of free speech? Rabid conservatives? Click here for the answer.


Last evening, the FOX News channel's Shephard Smith included a brief mention about Galileo and the Catholic Church. He repeated the same tired lies that the issue between Galileo and the Church was the scientific contradiction of the Church's "view" that the earth was the center of the universe. Mr Shephard would benefit from reading Thomas E Woods, Jr's How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization. He might also read from the Network's own Fox Forum an article by attorney Tommy De Seno entitled "Darwin Day" is for Dummies.
