New Humanist has its annual BAD FAITH poll open for crashing.
The list is full of burning stupid. But burning stupid really is not enough these days.
Only one nominee really stands out as a despicable abomination worthy of complete and utter scorn.
The Governors of St. Monica’s
Other people are on the list for saying something silly to atheists, believing dinosaurs walked with people, or getting some old dude’s book banned. The Governor’s have done something much worse.
They have blocked preventative medicine from reaching children.
That’s right. A vaccine was developed that reduces young women’s risk of cervical cancer tremendously, and yet these bastards have told doctors they can not give it to their students. Why?
Because without the threat of cancer their students will become sluts. There’s strong faith in human conviction there.
The idiocy is that it’s not like there is HIV, gonnorhea, siphilis, and a whole host of other nether-region nasties they can fall back on to scare young ones celibate. (But, don’t worry us godless medical scientists are working on cures for those too).
These horrible people are supposed to be looking after the children in their care. They wouldn’t ban dentist vans because they encourage kids to eat too many sweeties. Or would they?
People who let children get lethal diseases are scum. It’s pretty simple choice really.
Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter are leading on reputation alone. And some crackpot Islamic creationist is third just because he pissed of Richard Dawkins. Go over, have a scan of the contenders and vote for someone who is really evil.
