Canada is Pagan

Canada is legislatively becomingmore and more Wiccan as time goes by. The Supreme Court has redefined indecency, basing it on harm done instead of community standards. The ruling explicitly legalizes private sex clubs. Wow. Basically, harm none.

While part of me is really squeamish, I'm more impressed than dismayed.

“Grounding criminal indecency in harm represents an important advance in this difficult area of law.”
-Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin

PS. Happy winter solstice!

Creationism vs. Slashdot

Slashdot, among others, reports that a sticker being put on textbooks in an American county are unconstitutional in that they violate the separation of church and state. The stickers start by saying "Evolution is a theory, not a fact..."

This comment was hilarious: " Dear Creationists,
We'll put these stickers on our science textbooks when you put God's existence is a theory, not a fact on your bibles." Possibly the most apt and funny post I've read in recent memory. And I'm totally for having both stickers!
