Lazy Sunday Posting

Alright, I'm going to be honest here, all these links are going to be links because it's Sunday and I'm busy/lazy.

Firstly, looks like the BBC will be releasing tv shows for download a week after they air. Upon hearing the news Drew kissed his moniter for not the first time.

The University of California is being sued for "discriminating against high schools that teach crationism and other conservative Christian viewpoints." Seems they don't accept science courses that teach Creationism as an alternative to evolution.

Following right up on that one we have this:"SMYRNA, Tenn. -- Members of a church say God is punishing American soldiers for defending a country that harbors gays, and they brought their anti-gay message to the funerals Saturday of two Tennessee soldiers killed in Iraq." Wow. Just wow.

Finally in the religious trifecta we have an article explaining that there are perfectly understandable reasons why the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has given around $10 million to the Discovery Institute, one of the main groups behind the recent rash of attempts to get intelligent design into schools specifically and the public conciousness generally.
