Armageddon's comin'!

Shocking breakdown of the sway that the Christian right holds over public policy in America. Most disheartening are the ramifications for environmental policy:

[...] many Christian fundamentalists feel that concern for the future of our planet is irrelevant, because it has no future. They believe we are living in the End Time, when the son of God will return, the righteous will enter heaven, and sinners will be condemned to eternal hellfire. They may also believe, along with millions of other Christian fundamentalists, that environmental destruction is not only to be disregarded but actually welcomed -- even hastened -- as a sign of the coming Apocalypse.

Paging Don Knotts

Now how the hell did I miss this last year? God, or Satan -- the juries still out -- revealed himself in the form of fish last March:

According to two fish-cutters at the New Square Fish Market, the carp was about to be slaughtered and made into gefilte fish for Sabbath dinner when it suddenly began shouting apocalyptic warnings in Hebrew.
Fortunately, the scaley prophet was quickly subdued:
The animated carp commanded Rosen to pray and study the Torah. Rosen tried to kill the fish but injured himself. It was finally butchered by Nivelo and sold.
The fish's final sermon was delivered with a lovely lemon sauce and parsley garnish.
