Insanity Times Two

The rightwing universe is crazy, we all know that.

The First Amendment Outlaws Islam
Bryan Fischer isn't just some Christian nut. When he interprets the Constitution as permitting religious freedom only to Christian denominations he is speaking for an influential group. His organization, American Family Association, is one of the go-to groups for Republican politicians. Huckabee, Gingrich, Pawlenty, and Bachmann all genuflect before the AFA altar. His exclusion of Muslims (and, by implication, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists) from Constitutional protections followed by the refusal of Republican politicians to denounce the interpretation suggests their quiet agreement.

Kiss a Girl, Go to Jail
Alaska's governor Sean Parnell (not being as crazy as Sarah Palin does not make him sane) has appointed to a board that selects judicial candidates a man who believes that having sex outside of marriage ought to be a criminal offense. There is an up side. If Gov. Parnell had his way Bristol Palin would be serving hard time now for doing the naughty with Levi.
