Bad faith award nomination

leave a comment »


PZ Myers thinks Palin deserves to be nominated for the “most scurrilous enemy of reason” award. How about Bobby “the exorcist” Jindal?

in an essay Jindal wrote in 1994 for the New Oxford Review, a serious right-wing Catholic journal, Jindal narrated a bizarre story of a personal encounter with a demon, in which he participated in an exorcism with a group of college friends. And not only did they cast out the supernatural spirit that had possessed his friend, Jindal wrote that he believes that their ritual may well have cured her cancer.

Predictably, this voice of unreason is being talked about as a potential member of 2012 GOP ticket.
