Focus on the fundies

Fred Phelps and his one-ring circus plan on showing up in the Bay Area exurb of Tracy [map] for graduation ceremonies at a high school where a teacher resigned after making anti-gay comments to students.

It's hardly fair to call the universally reviled Phelps a fundamentalist. His radical homophobia makes even conservative Christians shudder.

In the latest development in the Air Force Academy Christian proselitizing scandal -- man, do you know how hard it is to spell proselitizing? -- Commandant of Cadets Brig. Gen. Johnny Weida is under investigation by the Air Force for pushing his fundamentalist Christian beliefs on cadets.

There is actually a movement among pro-lifers to legalize the adoption of embryos -- something to do with the stem-cell debate. Quoth one misguided woman: "We really felt like the Lord was calling us to try to give one of these embryos, these children, a chance to live." Good Christ.

The flamers at Bob Jones University make ordinary conservatives look like "tree-huggers," writes a student journalist. Link courtesy Christianity Today's news blog.

How is it legalizing embryo adoption? It's not as if it's illegal now. How do you legalize something that's already legal?
