The county in Tennessee that once convicted John Scopes for teaching evolution, now wants to amend state law so that they can charge homosexuals with crimes against nature; they also want to ban them from the county. Amazing, these guys are so bigoted they make Dubya look tolerant by comparison. Even if they can get state law amended to allow them to prosecute homosexuals, I doubt it would stand up to a Supreme Court review, especially after the court struck down Texas's sodomy laws last year. And speaking of the Supreme Court...

A bill has been proposed in the House of Representatives to allow Congress to reverse a Supreme Court Decision by a 2/3 majority vote in each House. The bill, HR 3920, is titled “Congressional Accountability for Judicial Activism Act of 2004”. It's disgusting that the GOP is so fixated on "judicial activism" and gay marriage, that they're doing everything they can think of to circumvent our country's system of checks and balances--"Separation of powers? What separation of powers?" That sound you're hearing is our Constitution going through the shredder.

Idiotic Quote for the Day "I really believe that the pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays who are actively trying make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way - all of them who have tried to secularize America - I point the finger in their face and say 'You helped this happen.'"--Reverend Jerry Falwell (Speaking about 9/11)
