Why Christianity is in Trouble: Halloween!

Christianity is in trouble, with church attendance falling and faith weakening across the nation. What are they going to do to save the faith? Well, some of the more clever conservative Christians figured out a solution: Piss off kids on Halloween! Drop Bibles and religious tracts into their candy bags! Tell them they're sinners! Halloween is devil worship!

Yeah, that's sure to pull those kids into church next Sunday.

Seriously, they're doing this. USA Today is reporting that the American Tract Society (ATS) published Peek-A-Boo, Jesus Loves You! (Yes, ATS really exists ... I always wondered where all those tracts came from.)

But up in Calgary, they're going one better. Those cheapskate ATS tracts are nothing compared to the Holy Bible that Calgary kids are going to get! And by the way, it's not Halloween, it's "Jesus-ween."

Seriously, people. Why not just take your religion out behind the barn and just bury it? It would be just as effective, and you wouldn't be annoying a bunch of innocent kids who just want to have some fun.

Should Gay-Bashing Teacher Lose Job?

Do teachers have to give up their First-Amendment right to free speech when they take their first job? In a strange twist on free speech, the ACLU is defending an ultra-conservative evangelical right-wing Christian's right to gay-bashing hate speech. The case of high-school teacher Viki Knox, the self-described "Jesus freak," reminds us that free speech is a complex issue.

Ms. Knox's school posted a display on a bulletin board recognizing LGBT history month. Ms. Knox was offended and not afraid to say so ... on Facebook. She wrote (emphasis in original):
"Homosexuality is a perverted spirit ... Why parade your unnatural immoral behaviors before the rest of us? AND YOU ARE WRONG! I/WE DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT ANYTHING, ANYONE. ANY BEHAVIOR OR ANY CHOICES! I DO NOT HAVE TO TOLERATE ANYTHING OTHERS WISH TO DO."
I'm sure all of my readers will agree that Ms. Knox's comments are despicable, hateful, and should be an embarrassment to all civilized Americans. But ... what about free speech? Is Ms. Knox's hateful gay-bashing grounds for firing her? Don't teachers have a right to free speech?

Ed Barocas, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, says Ms. Knox shouldn't be fired: "The ACLU believes that the response to offensive speech is not the restriction of speech, but more speech." In other words, the ACLU says Ms. Knox's hate speech should not disqualify her from teaching.

I rarely disagree with the ACLU, but in this case I do. I can't see how Ms. Knox can possibly treat her students fairly given her clear bias against gays and lesbian teens.

One of the most important rights we have as Americans is the freedom to say what we want, without fear of persecution, imprisonment or death (all of which were real fears before the American revolution, and are still fears in many parts of the world). And we also know that our morals, with rare exceptions, are none of our employer's business. As long as we're at work, we do our employer's bidding and act according to our employer's rules. And when we go home, we can be bigots and jerks, and it's none of our employer's concern.

But there are exceptions to this rule. Teachers, welfare workers, judges, law-enforcement officials and politicians have to understand that there is no brick wall between their public and private lives. It's more like a gauze curtain. Even the President of Boeing learned this the hard way.

"But," you might argue, "Ms. Knox is really fair in the classroom. She treats all the students equally. You'd never know from her classroom behavior that she's anti-gay. Let her keep teaching!"

Baloney. Her Facebook comments are sure to infiltrate her classroom. I'd bet a fair sum of money that news of her anti-gay diatribe spread like wildfire through the student body. Her life is only private inside the walls of her own home.

If I were the parent of one of Viki Knox's students, I'd exercise my own right to free speech and talk to my kids and the community about LGBT issues and Ms. Knox's religion-inspired hate speech. It would be an opportunity to explain that once a kid graduates from high school, it's the real world, filled with real people ... and they'll be on their own to face bigots like Ms. Knox.

Ms. Knox has a right to be an anti-gay bigot and to say so, or she has a right to be a teacher. But not both. She can't expect to hurl insults at the entire gay/lesbian community and then teach in a classroom that includes gays and lesbians.

marketing bullshit isn't just from marketing departments

so apparently there's a conference going on right now called hacker halted. i heard mention of it a few days ago but paid little attention because frankly there are just too many security conferences to keep track of. what piqued my interest yesterday, however, was a retelling of something george kurtz is supposed to have said in one of the keynotes at the conference - specifically, he's quoted as saying the following (from @InfosecurityMag's tweet)
industry has to move beyond signatures and customers need to demand this from the vendors. We need to change and adapt
now i have to admit i had no idea who george kurtz was. fact of the matter is i have no idea who most people in the security field are (so if you're wondering why i don't follow you back on twitter or add you to a circle on google+, that's a strong contender for the reason why). i thought he was just some crank talking about things he didn't really know much about (more common than you might think, unfortunately) because the AV industry hasn't been relying exclusively on signatures for quite a long time.

imagine my surprise to discover george kurtz is actually the chief technology officer at mcafee, of all places. would such a highly titled representative of an AV company really say such a bizarre thing? well, if symantec's CEO can claim the virus problem is solved, then i guess so, but it still begs the question "what was he thinking?"

thankfully rik ferguson managed to tease a little something extra out of george on twitter
George Kurtz woke up in 2008 today "industry has to move beyond signatures". Helloooo? McFly?
@rik_ferguson maybe you missed the part about the hardware assisted security. Opps.. forgot you don't really have that at Trend.
and there we have it; the quote that people are fawning over (or scratching their heads over) was actually marketing bullshit. oh sure, on the the surface it looks like an AV big wig eating crow and admitting that his company isn't doing a good enough job and needs to improve; just the kind of frank confession we're all waiting for the AV industry to make. but with this added wrinkle we see that's not it at all. george's company supposedly already has improved and it's everybody else who still has the problem. mcafee has this licked, mcafee is the solution, buy mcafee.

no, he didn't actually say 'mcafee is the solution, buy mcafee' (to the best of my knowledge), but that is the reality distortion he's setting up - and distorting reality that way is the hallmark of marketing. all that remains is to publicly declare that deepsafe (their hardware assist technology that they announced over a month ago) is how you "move beyond signatures" and the marketing message will be complete with reality suitably distorted to mcafee's benefit and everyone else's detriment.

now you might be thinking to yourself that this can't be true, that such a highly placed and well respected security expert would never stoop to such base gamesmanship. the fact is that not only do most public faces of the industry practice marketing regularly in the process of representing their respective companies, but most high profile speakers rise above the rest not strictly by merit but by effectively selling themselves and building their personal brands - and if they have to stretch the truth or fuzz the facts or distort reality to make their message more palatable to the masses and give themselves more cache and influence, then so be it.

and the unfortunate consequence of this is that, due to the fact that the rest of us rely on such speakers to inform us, much of what the majority of us know about the the subject matter in question is actually somewhat wrong in subtle (or not so subtle) ways. reality distortion interferes with the formation of accurate mental models and that in turn interferes with people's ability to deal with the parts of the real world those models are supposed to represent. one of the things i've tried to impress on people in the past is that they need to stop listening to marketing, but i realize now that i don't have an easy method for them to recognize it in the first place. at least not without developing much more thorough knowledge than they currently have, and to do so without relying on apparent authorities on the subject in question is no easy task.

no, marketing bullshit isn't restricted to the glossy pages of a magazine or the cover of a box or an ad on tv. it's not just the product of marketing departments. it's woven into the very fabric of what we think we know, and it's hurting us.

Global Warming Science Vindicated ... Again

It's time for everyone who jumped all over my previous blogs about global warming to eat some crow. And it's time to celebrate another victory for good science winning over opinions, faith and dishonesty.

U.C. Berkeley scientist Richard Muller, a climate specialist and self-described global-warming skeptic, headed a massive review of all global warming data at U.C. Berkeley. And better yet, his study was funded in part by the famous conservative billionaire brothers, Charles and David Koch.

And guess what? Muller's team confirmed that global warming is real. But even better, their results show that global warming is actually worse than the conclusions from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change!

Got that? A conservative-funded review by a top climate skeptic and his team said that the mainstream reports were too conservative and that global warming is real.

What do you think will happen to the debate now? Probably nothing. Global warming deniers are a mix of about 1% genuine scientific dissent by a few qualified scientists, joined by hoards of evangelical Christians, pseudo-Libertarians, conspiracy theorists and other hangers-on, fueled by an industry-sponsored disinformation campaign. It's certain that the real scientists in this group will review the Berkeley study's results thoroughly, and some of them will change their positions in the face of the evidence. A few will remain unconvinced.

But the non-scientists and corporate schills? Their beliefs have nothing to do with science.

The religious right will continue to deny global warming, because the Bible says God promised to protect Earth after he killed everyone and everything during Noah's flood. And the professional disinformation specialists will continue to do their jobs, fueling debate with more nonsense.

We can only hope that this report will make a difference where it matters: with policy makers.

Herman Cain Happy to Usurp States on Abortion, Marriage

What ever happened to honest conservatives? You know, the ones that believed in minimal government, states rights and individual freedom?

It seems they're turning those tasks over to the liberals. When it comes to abortion, marriage, gay rights and religion, the Republicans are showing their true colors: the conservatives are one hundred percent in favor of taking away individual liberties and states' rights.

CBN (the Christian Broadcasting Network) got an exclusive interview with Herman Cain that perfectly illustrates how Republicans are advocating a federal takeover.
"Yes I feel that strongly about [a pro-life Constitutional amendment banning abortion]. If we can get the necessary support and it comes to my desk I’ll sign it. That’s all I can do. I will sign it. ... I think marriage should be protected at the federal level also. I used to believe that it could be just handled by the states but there’s a movement going on to basically take the teeth out of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act ... we do need some protection at the federal level ... I would support legislation that would say that it’s between a man and a woman.
I just don't get how Republicans can talk out of both sides of their mouths with such ease. One minute they paint the federal government as a huge, evil, corrupt beast that is sucking the country dry, interfering with free trade and taking away our guns. The next minute, they want the federal government in our bedrooms, doctors' offices and wedding ceremonies.

But there is one good thing coming out of the Republican party this election. The candidates are eating each other alive. They're trying to out-conservative each other in order to appease the Tea Baggers Party, and in the process they are alienating moderate Americans so badly that President Obama may have a virtual cakewalk to his reelection.

Cain: No Abortions Allowed ... At All

At least Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain can't be called indecisive on abortion. He wants to overturn Roe v. Wade. In fact, he wants to outlaw abortion altogether.
"I believe in life from conception and I do not agree with abortion under any circumstances. Not for rape and incest ... Because if you look at rape and incest, the percentage of those instances is so miniscule [sic] that there are other options. If it’s the life of the mother that family is going to have to make that decision."
So, if a thirteen-year-old girl is raped by her stepfather, then neither she nor her mother can choose whether to carry that man's child? Even the very next day, when the egg hasn't even implanted itself in her uterus and has no spinal cord or brain cells?

Exactly. That fertilized cell, according to Cain, is a full human being with more rights than the girl and her family.

And why does Cain block abortions for rape and incest? Just because it's a rare crime. From what Cain says, it sounds like he might reconsider if rape and incest were more common. Does that make sense to you? Do you think it makes sense to rape and incest victims?

California Law Makes it a Crime to Plan to Gamble in Nevada!

Taking inspiration from H.R. 313 (the "drug trafficking" bill that makes it illegal to plan or discuss smoking marijuana in Amsterdam, even though it's legal there), the State of California today made it a crime to plan a trip to Nevada to gamble, even though it's legal to gamble in Nevada.

"We're tired of Nevada's gambling casinos ruining the lives of California citizens," said Governor Jerry Brown. "From now on, if a Californian wants to go see Wayne Newton singing at the Tropicana, and happens to drop a quarter in the slots on the way to the show, that's fine. But by golly, if they even think about gambling before they head for The Strip, we want them to know they're going to jail for violating California law."

Governor Brown outlined plans to question all motorists and airline passengers entering Nevada. "A system of airport security stations and highway border-crossing stations will be built to ensure that California citizens aren't planning to gamble," said the governor. "They're only allowed to think about gambling once they've arrived."

Several other states are lining up to criminalize the travel-planning business:Governor Brown applauded his fellow governors for these "courageous new laws" inspired by H.R. 313.

When questioned about gamblers who might evade the California gambling-conspiracy ban by traveling to Nevada via Oregon or Arizona, Brown sounded positively gleeful. "That's conspiring to gamble, conspiring to hide the conspiracy, and crossing state lines to commit a conspiracy. We'll nail 'em to the wall!"

Critics of these new laws point out that they will face Constitutional challenges. But Governor Brown was quick to respond. "Are they conspiring to prevent passage of this law?"
