    Nah, just that the arguement "It should be acceptable because the X amount of people support it" just isn't a logical arguement. A clear majority of Americans support a ban on homosexual marriage, yet I don't see many liberals accepting that arguement.

    Who said it should be acceptable because X people support it? Now that it is however legal in all 50 states it would indeed take the support of the American populace to reverse it. Something being legal does not mean it is acceptable however it would take the support of a majority to reverse it. Please stop your straw men?

    So you support tyranny of the majority?

    Just because the majority doesn't accept it doesn't make that lack of acceptance right.

    Pretty much. I have a hard time voting for a candidate who thinks the world was created 6,000 years ago. Jindal as the face of the GOP more or less reaffirms that the GOP is diametrically opposed to the whole notion of science sans new ways to kill people.

    And it shows that Jindal doesn't quite understand that he has to examine his own positions. YEC rejects the notion of radiometric dating and radioactivity as it based in the premise of extreme time lines. Yet the same principles for radioactivity underlie safe operations of nuclear power not to mention its basic operations. Jindal has called for nuclear power. This is inherently contradictory on his part as he is promoting something his beliefs say should not exist. And he's done much of the same for promoting biosciences in his state yet he rejects evolution never mind the obvious fact that biosciences, particularly bioengineering is based heavily in the theory of evolution. How can he call for enacting, funding and promoting things his belief say are fiction?

    The possibility exists that he's using it for social conservative votes and doesn't believe in ID and YEc or he's just ignorant as to what his religious beliefs really are. I can accept the first one. The second is a vote killer.

    Could you imagine that an atheist or even a christian who believed in evolution can even make it on the GOP ticket?

    I don't think it is possible for a major position like president. That is the main problem with the GOP, the fundamentalists and just the regular Christians have a hard time coming to terms with evolution.

    It's rather hard to call anyone the new face when the GOP itself doesn't know what it is.
    If Palin is the "new face" of the GOP in 2010, I'm gonna go chris brown on that ****.
