Joseph Farah Wishes the Earth a Happy 6028th Birthday

Joseph Farah of the Worldnetdaily is a young earth creationist. That’s long been known. Turns out he can’t do math either, since he thinks Bishop Ussher’s date of 4004 bc means the earth is 6028 years old (it would actually be 6017 — 4004 + 2014 – 1 for the non-existent year 0).

Most Absurd Legal Motion Ever?

Phillip and Sandra Unruh of the great state of Kansas are might perturbed right about now. They’ve filed a motion to intervene as defendants in the lawsuit challenging that state’s ban on same-sex marriage on the absolutely bizarre grounds that their marriage is a “property” and that letting gay people get married somehow takes their property without due process or compensation.

Gohmert: Gay Massages Make Us Vulnerable to Terrorism

Louis Gohmert, in addition to the brilliant insights he offers on other subjects, apparently fancies himself to be a classical scholar.
