Bush Remarks On 'Intelligent Design' Theory Fuel Debate

Within the Washington Post's front page article on the somewhat benign remarks President Bush has made about including the Intelligent Design theory along with the theory of evolution in school curricula is this little gem of a quote from Barney Frank:
"It is, of course, further indication that a fundamentalist right has really taken over much of the Republican Party,' said Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), a leading liberal lawmaker. Noting Bush's Ivy League education, Frank said, 'People might cite George Bush as proof that you can be totally impervious to the effects of Harvard and Yale education.'"

Get it? Bush is stupid!!! Ha ha ha ha ha! Wow, that's a really brilliant wit Barney displays there... what an original thinker he is!

But let's explore Mr. Franks' embrace of natural selection a little further. It's no secret that Rep. Frank is gay. How, exactly, does natural selection (survival of the fittest) fit in with the scientific basis of homosexuality? If natural selection is truly the scientific basis of our existence and survival, then wouldn't homosexuals be extinct by now? I mean, it's hard for a species to survive or thrive if there's no procreatin' goin' on, right Barney?

If I were gay, I'd be embracing the idea of intelligent design. It supports the position that I am one of God's children and should be afforded the same respect and dignity of any other person as I am created in His image.
