A Creationist May Become Florida State University’s Next President

I went to school at the University of Illinois at Chicago. For a school whose name didn’t command much attention in the state much less outside of it, one thing you heard constantly on campus was that we were a “Research I” university. Among other things, that meant research was a big priority for us, and we got a lot of funding for it, and we prided ourselves on the designation. (Take that, Northwestern.)

The Carnegie Foundation doesn’t use that classification system anymore, but Florida State University was also a Research I university.

Holy War might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but former Arkansas Governor and 2008 Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is pretty excited about it. You see, like other right-wing religious luminaries, he’s… well, got a book. And, what do you know? That book tells him how a religious war between Muslims and Christians turns out. (Hint: it’s not the same ending Islamic radicals find in their book. Someone’s going to be disappointed!)

Attorney Charging Teen with Desecration of Jesus Statue Had Affair in His Office and Posted Porn Audio on Twitter

I posted last week about a 14-year-old boy from Pennsylvania who thought it would be hilarious to take pictures with a local Jesus statue as if he were getting a mock-blowjob from the Lord.

He’s currently facing two years in prison for this supposed desecration, a charge that is wildly out of proportion for what he did. As I said before, I don’t condone his actions, but bad taste and immaturity aren’t crimes.

The story gets even crazier when you consider two facts:
