The Unbelieving Left

One of the more interesting apps on my iPhone is called Show of Hands.  It's a polling app in which people can vote for one of two answers to a variety of questions.  The results are, of course, limited to iPhone users who have the app installed and take the time to vote.  But, while the results are not scientific and not necessarily a valid representation of the entire country, the percentage breakdown of political parties is sometimes very telling.

One of the past week's questions was:  Do you believe the Easter story as told in the New Testament is historically accurate?



National vote count:  6752
Yes:  51%
No:  49%

Democrat votes:  1689
Yes:  29%
No:  71%

Republican votes:  1959
Yes:  77%
No:  23%

Independent votes:  1474
Yes:  45%
No:  55%

I'm very surprised that 71% of Democrats who responded don't believe the resurrection of Jesus Christ is historically accurate.  I would have thought the percentage would be closer to 90%.

A Politically Incorrect Earth Day

I have been neglecting my blog far too long.  It has been more than two months since my last post.  Well, Earth Day has motivated me to start posting again.

In recognition of Earth Day, today I shall turn on all my electronic devices, crank the air conditioner to the refrigerator level, turn on all the lights in my house, print a ton of unnecessary documents, eat nothing but processed food, and sit in my SUV and rev the engine while watching a movie on my netbook.  And maybe I'll chop down a tree in my back yard that I've been thinking of removing.

This evening I shall charcoal something that's been killed.  A dead animal.  Because I'm a member of PETA.  Oh, not that PETA.  The PETA I belong to is People Eating Tasty Animals.  Yummy!

Nothing encourages me to use up resources more than some greenie telling me I'm a bad person for doing so.
