every time a bell rings, a religious extremist tells a lie

friend and winner of the inaugural screaming carrot award for best blog in new jersey, steve hart, delivers a sundae smackdown topped with the maraschino cherry of truth to fifteen-minutes-of-fame-religious-extremist david paszkiewicz, the kearny high school history teacher who used his history class to...um..."debunk" evolution and other facts while simultaneously exposing his ignorance of same. for those who don't remember the story, when paszkiewicz was called on the carpet for, among other things, telling his non-christian students that they were going to hell, he denied saying any of it. that's when the student who complained about it, matt leclair, produced audio recordings of paszkiewicz's rants, proving that paszkiewicz was a liar.

now paszkiewicz has exposed his lack of knowledge about american history in a local newspaper. hart deconstructs the religious rant for what it is: lies from a proven liar.

The only way to stop these fuckers is to keep exposing their hypocrisy for the whole world to see.

I posted this over there, but thought to leave a copy here, redacted, for the interest in the TJ quotation:

TJ was certainly never a Bible-thumper. He didn't believe that the Bible was the word of God. He didn't believe in miracles, and he didn't believe in an active 'providence.' Nor did he ever have sex with any of his slaves, but that's a different topic.

"While this syllabus is meant to place the character of Jesus in its true and high light, as no imposter Himself, but a great Reformer of the Hebrew code of religion, it is not to be understood that I am with Him in all His doctrines.

"I am a Materialist; He takes the side of Spiritualism. He preaches the efficacy of repentence toward forgiveness of sin; I require a counterpoise of good works to redeem it, etc., etc. It is the innocence of his character, the purity and sublimity of His moral precepts, the eloquence of His inculcations, the beauty of the apologues in which he conveys them, that I so much admire; sometimes, indeed, needing indulgence to eastern hyperbolism.

"My eulogies, too, may be founded on a postulate which all may not be ready to grant. Among his sayings and discourses imputed to Him by His biographers, I find many passages of fine imagination, correct morality, and of the most lovely benevolence; and others, again, of so much ignorance, so much absurdity, so much untruth, charlatanism and imposture, as to pronounce it impossible that such contradictions should have proceeded from the same Being.

"I separate, therefore, the gold from the dross; restore to Him the former, and leave the latter to the stupidity of some, and the roguery of others of His disciples."

(TJ, letter to Kemp, 1816)
