Honor trumps hate, stupidity

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

Harlan Ellison once remarked, “The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity.” And equally astute observer of the world, Frank Zappa, retorted, “There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe and it has a longer shelf life.”
Lately, I’ve seen less and less hydrogen in the world.
Thus marches in the Sultans of Stupid to debate the recent decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow membership by gay children under the age of 18.
The tempest is boiling with small brained homophobes across the nation. With Alabama competing for Olympic gold in stupidity (this is news?), some churches in that state have made headlines by announcing that Boy Scouts will no longer be allowed to meet at the church.
Pastor Greg Walker of the Baptist Church of Helena summed up his charter of tolerance and love with his shortest sermon ever: “You’re not welcome here!” When questioned as to why a church would exclude children, church members chanted, “Sinners should burn in hell, not attend services of worship with good people.”
