The ID in Ideology
Just in case there was any question about the objectivity of the report on the Richard Sternberg affair issued by the staff of the House Government Reform Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy, and Human Resources, the outgoing chairman of the subcommittee, Rep. Mark Souder, Republican of Indiana, has an interview in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette where he was asked if he had any disappointments in the past Congress:
In a number of our key pro-life things we were defeated – the unborn pain awareness, the Plan B. We got setbacks on intelligent design. A lot of the social issues it was a year we tried to make progress, we had the debates, but we lost.
The term 'invincible ignorance' comes to mind. I don't claim to understand what it means in every context, but I can sure understand what it means in this one.
Be glad that Souder and all the rest are as you said, "outgoing". It's time to tell them, "Just leave - and don't let the door hit you on the way out."
