Are we losing our collective minds????

Look what I just found:

Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle once partook in a campaign against a local high school's use of black football jerseys, arguing that the dark color was ungodly and wicked...
It was Homecoming of 1992 and Nevada's Tonopah High School football was seeking to depart from their school colors, specifically in wearing black jerseys instead of the usual red and white. The uniform change was meant to be a display of solidarity...
Enter Sharron Angle and her color-crusading cohort.
"I cannot quote scripture as they did to justify their point but the gist of their argument was that black as a color was thoroughly evil, invoking the supernatural and especially the devil," [news reporter Bill] Roberts reports. "Whichever argument prevailed, school administrators caved in and prohibited the Muckers from wearing the black apparel."

The black uniforms were then confiscated and held under "lock and key" by the administration, which refused to compensate the team for the money they had spent acquiring the jerseys.

I'm getting really disheartened by the fundamentalist mood that has prevailed in this country for some time now. Heck, it's not only disheartening, it's scary.

Just in case you've been living under a rock lately, Sharron Angle is the Republican challenging Harry Reid for his Senate seat.

I found the above story right here.

  1. I guess my little black dress is going to send me straight to hell. But what about all of those nuns' habits. Tut, tut. God's gonna get those bad, bad nuns in those black habits. Is this woman kidding? She can't be for real. Not even Sarah Palin is that crazy.
