Speaking of …

… the Christian Right, I finished my final project for the Art and Religion class. It's a video about their hypocrisy. My good friend Cindy is going to post about it, so I figured I'd beat her to the punch. 🙂

Perhaps not quite this soon, but likely in the first year sometime.

Just around the time it began gelling, it got ungelled by the newer stuff around the possible use of Napalm and White phosphorus by our troops in Iraq.
