Roy Moore: Still An Idiot

From today’s column:

But serious consequences follow when we remove the knowledge of God from our life!

A decline in our education system began in 1962 when the U.S. Supreme Court took prayer from our schools and, one year later, banned reading of the Bible in our classrooms. A drastic increase in violence and crime followed the Court’s removal of the Ten Commandments from a Kentucky school in 1980 and the prohibition of teaching creationism in 1987.

The exclusion of God in our public life has had similar results. A loss of moral direction has affected our institutions and governmental operations. In 1984, the Supreme Court ruled that a Nativity scene on public property was appropriate only if surrounded by “secular” symbols; in 2005, it ruled that the Ten Commandments could only be displayed on government property if it is part of a historical menagerie mixed with other secular documents or displays.

I’ll grant for the sake of argument his assertion that there is a conspiracy to eliminate God and that there has been a decline in morality. But does that mean the latter caused the former? If so, how about this:

You may be interested to know that global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of Pirates since the 1800s. For your interest, I have included a graph of the approximate number of pirates versus the average global temperature over the last 200 years. As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature.

    During the time period Moore references, the religious right has become more and more influential in politics. Perhaps that’s the real cause of the moral decline.

  2. Willie Says:

    Again, Sunday school is an excellent way for your child to add religion to their life. Or, maybe send them to one of these Christian schools that pop up in trailers behind churches will strange names.
