"An Inconvenient Truth" Raises Hackles in Washington

From Boston.com:

FEDERAL WAY, Wash. -- Frosty Hardiman is neither impressed nor surprised that "An Inconvenient Truth," the global warming movie narrated by former vice president Al Gore, received an Oscar nomination this week for best documentary.

"Liberal left is all over Hollywood," he grumbled a few hours after the nomination was announced.

Hardiman, a parent of seven in the southern suburbs of Seattle, has roiled the global-warming waters.

It happened early this month when he learned that one of his daughters would be watching "An Inconvenient Truth" in her seventh-grade science class.

"No, you will not teach or show that propagandist Al Gore video to my child, blaming our nation -- the greatest nation ever to exist on this planet -- for global warming," Hardiman wrote in an e-mail to the Federal Way School Board.

The 43-year-old computer consultant is an evangelical Christian who said he believes that a warming planet is "one of the signs" of Jesus Christ's imminent return for Judgment Day.

His angry e-mail, along with complaints from a few other parents, stopped the film from being shown.

The teacher in that science class, Kay Walls, said that after Hardiman's e-mail her principal told her she would receive a disciplinary letter for not following school board rules that require her to seek written permission to present "controversial" materials in class.

I'm sorry, but can people get any more stupid? Stuff like this is what's wrong with this country. I finally saw Jesus Camp the other night, and it shows a mother telling her child that global warming is a lie made up by non-Christians. What on earth has that got to do with Christianity and the Bible?

Seriously. Wake up and smell the melting ice caps.
