Catholic bishops sell pornography and creationism in Kentucky
Did you know the Catholic church in Germany owns a publishing company, Weltbild that sells online, pornographic magazines? Also, it owns a Munich based publishing company, Droemer Knaur, that also sells online pornographic magazines. I don't believe material made for and by adults for other adults should be banned, but the Catholic church in the past and now, has favored bans not just of images but books, such as Tropic of Cancer.
That Catholic leadership in Germany have ignored concerns for years by Catholics on the selling of this material by one of their companies is not that surprising, considering their ignoring child molestation by their priests and how the average Catholic has no more say in their church, than do I.
Closer to home, in Kentucky, the Kentucy Republican party, no shock, is opposed to the teaching of evolution. Because, as they point out, it's just a theory. But in science, a theory is a model that describes observations and data. The ability of me to post this column online, is because of the scientific theories of relativity, quantum mechanics, electro-magnetic theory, among others. Not guesses. That a vaccine for polio stops people from getting polio, is based on the theory of evolution. Not a guess, as is how theory is commonly defined in laymen's terms.
So, Republican legislators in Kentucky are thinking that the ACT test that students in take to get into college, be changed to strike out the national standards of knowledge of evolution. Since it is a just a theory, of course. They have a point. In the bible, Pi, the circumference of a circle divided by its' diameter is defined as 3 instead of approximately 3.14. The math section of the ACT should reflect that and just define Pi as a solid 3, as the bible commands it.
