This is the liberals' version of 'apostolic succession'

From Newsweek:
The theory is almost too perfect to be true. Barack Obama, the son of politically progressive parents, was born Aug. 4, 1961—almost nine months to the day after John F. Kennedy was elected to the White House. Is it possible Obama was conceived on that historic night?
I've got a great idea for a new novel; I'm going to call it "Holy Blood, Holy Bong".

I've said it before and I'll say it again: when people abandon organized religion, most don't become atheists. They simply invent new and goofy religions of their own.

Ellie's got a point. That's pretty much where the Mormons and the Scientologists seem to have come from...

But I don't think it's quite "apostolic succession". It sounds more like their version of the Virgin Birth.

Jesus might say that about the fact that Roman Catholics abandoned Judaism, so I suppose that RC was considered a 'new and goofy' religion too at one time. I still agree on the 'goofy' part.

Just wondering if you saw this piece about the joys of diversity.
Sorry to write in the comment area, here, but there is no other way to reach the Doctor.

Yes, that's happening right in my own backyard! Glad this stupidity is getting noticed by the press - at least they're good for something. Dean noted that autism isn't going to be high on their list of worthy causes, either: it disproportionately affects boys.
