YouTubing-To-Obscure-Shameless-Self-Promotion Wednesdays: Teapot Atheist vs. Meth-Smoking Gay Pastor

The clip of recently resigned National Association of Evangelicals head Ted Haggard rhapsodizing on homosexuals in Jesus Camp has been dominating the media. But far more creepy and revealing is his appearance in The Root of All Evil?, Richard Dawkins' two-part TV doc about religion. (Perhaps you saw Dawkins buttfucking a transsexual on South Park!) You can find the full show, which spans two 45-minute sections, on YouTube, if you want. It's not prime Dawkins (neither, for that matter, is The God Delusion), only because the biologist tends to allow too many generalities when discussing religion, where he's typically air-tight when discussing evolution. Of course, not that he's wrong. Dig Haggard's rapidly diverting eyes and general impatient vibe when Dawkins is rhapsodizing on the beauty of science.

Weekly! I yammer on about Harsh Times and Old Joy (forth and fifth down). Also, Rep.

Finally, good job, America.
