Wednesday Morning Creepiness

In case it needs to be said, the super-Christianization of the US military is possibly the most terrifying aspect of modern life. Salon has an interview with a Jewish former JAG officer who's trying to shed light on the dominance of scary evangelicals in the planet's most efficient killing machine:
I talk to senior members of the military at the flag-level rank -- I don't know if you're familiar with what that means, that means admiral or general -- that have looked at me and said, "Come on, Mikey, what's your problem? We have the cure to cancer. If you had the cure to cancer, wouldn't you want to spread the word?" They don't realize when they say it, they don't have the mental wherewithal to understand that to a person who isn't an evangelical Christian, you're calling our faith a cancer.
Let's just hope the good doctors don't decide to resort to radiation therapy.

Now the Christian right has the cure to cancer AND the cure to gayness, which apparently consists of...not eating soy.

And these tools wonder why they just lost the congress.
