(I refuse to dignify myself by following that up.)
One thing I find particularly amusing is David Frum's response to the idea that evolution ought to be taught in schools:
I don't believe that anything that offends nine-tenths of the American public should be taught in public schools. ... Christianity is the faith of nine-tenths of the American public. ... I don't believe that public schools should embark on teaching anything that offends Christian principle.
Yes David, that's wonderful, but has anyone reminded you lately that you're Jewish? Is this really the precedent you want to set? Should we teach history from a Christian perspective as well? What with that sweet armageddony telos and its denial of you and yourn from the sweet part, I'm flabbergasted by my inability to think of why it shouldn't be. It is what "nine-tenths of the American public believes."
(Then again, why should I expect much from the Reader's Digest resident fellow at the American Enterprise institute. Reader's Digest endows fellows? Do they have to read the whole book or are excerpts acceptable? What about interviews with Harrison Ford? Do they get to interview Harrison Ford?)
