Suspending reality to support your beliefs

Now, I support anyone's right to choose any religious belief that they want - just as I support my own right to make fun of how far they will stretch their mental limits to not violate the things they claim to believe that just don't all fit into their theories. I was reminded of this now that the State of Florida has decided to cave into the religious ignorance some people have by labeling evolution a theory in some last minute negotiations.

So here you go - the Top 100 Fundamentalist Quotes - they are freaking hilarious.

And just to whet your appetite, here's a couple of entries:

I am a bit troubled. I believe my son has a girlfriend, because she left a dirty magazine with men in it under his bed. My son is only 16 and I really don't think he's ready to date yet. What's worse is that he's sneaking some girl to his room behind my back. I need help, God! I want my son to stop being so secretive!

"I brought these oranges down here today, and I was gonna eat them [...] but I know without a shadow of a doubt, this orange right here is the first cousin of somebody's pet cat. [...] and this orange here is no doubt the parent of somebody's pet dog. And I wonder, would you agree with me commissioner that these [oranges] are related to human beings? I've read, and I'm happy to report, that evolution supports my belief that these oranges are in fact related to human beings!"

[Watch the whole thing, it's a tour tard de force of fundie intellect!]
