Video: Because eating away our peace requires an empty stomach

by Jeremy Hooper

We couldn't eat for days after Prop 8, as the cruel vote turned our stomach from a place that was settled and hopeful for our nation, to a place where discrimination was so personally targeted and so negligently unapologetic that it'd make any principled America's bowels go irritable. Though apparently, we had it all wrong. Apparently if we hadn't been so busy feasting on the equality in our midst, we wouldn't have to suffer the cruel famine to come. For according to major Prop 8 backer Jim Garlow, a movement's personal eating habits are what truly wins a ballot initiative:

They're making such a childish argument. Oh wait no, I mean a superstitious argument. Oh wait no, I mean a religious argument. Hmmmm where to draw the line...?

The thinking that goes "if I fast, God will be pleased and reward me with X" is so incredibly flawed. If it happens that whatever they're wishing (praying) for happens, they attribute that success to their fasting. If, however, they lose, they end up in a state of cognitive dissonance and have to rationalize how they are still right despite the obvious fact they were wrong.

If I remember correctly what Richard Dawkins said, this is why he won't debate a theist - their circular logic means that by definition they cannot be wrong.
