United States Congressman John Shimkus (R-Il.) puts all of our minds at ease about global warming. Both because of what it says in some ancient texts AND because of his absolute certainty about it. We should all breathe a sigh of relief knowing THIS guy is making life and death decisions for us.

This is from the U.S. House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment - March 25th 2009

*IN CASE MY POINT WAS NOT CLEAR IN THE VIDEO*

I have no interest in arguing whether global warming is happening. The reason I find this so appalling is because this elected official is using his personal scripture to dismiss a public issue. It seems that no matter how sure we were about global warming, this clown would still ignore it because of what it says in his scripture.

Also, no one bothers to present any evidence for the veracity of their holy books. Which is fine, if it is a personal belief. It is their right to believe what they want to believe, and it is even their right to look down on non-believers - think less of them as a result of their disbelief - even though that doesn't seem very fair.

But when we start seeing people use scripture to ignore major global issues, I am afraid I am going to have to ask for some evidence to back up that funky old collection of desert scribblings.
