Darn too bad it’s January

This could be the sound bite of the year if this wasn’t January. By December nobody will remember it…..

I’m just going to pull a snippet from the story – only cause it’s too good to pass up. You can click on the link for the entire story.

First — our sound bite …

“Condoms don’t belong in school, and neither does Al Gore.”

Personally I happen to believe that condoms belong anywhere that people are having sex. And I’m not thinking I’d make a blanket statement that people are NOT having sex in school.

Now, let’s switch around the statement a little bit — because the complaint was about a movie that Al Gore is in so in fact that statement says…

Condoms don’t belong in school, and neither does the truth.

I really have to wonder, if someone that had never been involved in politics was featured in the movie, would the movie garner more respect in certain quarters? I know that somehow “Al Gore” is seen as a spokesperson for “all them silly liberals.” It doesn’t matter what he said – he’s considered by some to have a liberal bias.

But if I highly respected scientist type was in the movie, would it sell as much?? (I mean really how many “regular” folk are going to go running out to hear Stephen Hawking speak — he just doesn’t have the box office appeal??)

Then, one further comment.

THIS winter?? This winter someone is saying that global warming is a load of hooey??

SIGH

Al Gore’s documentary about global warming may not be shown unless the teacher also presents an “opposing view.”
“Condoms don’t belong in school, and neither does Al Gore. He’s not a schoolteacher,” said Frosty Hardison, a parent of seven who also said that he believes the Earth is 14,000 years old. “The information that’s being presented is a very cockeyed view of what the truth is. … The Bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn’t in the DVD.”
