Why it’d be fruitless for our side to bring Jesus into it

…because it’s not really about Jesus. Never has been, never will be.

Brilliant post today on William Gibson’s (yes, that William Gibson) brilliant blog:

Re Creationism, I must point out an unfortunate
subtext that’s no longer quite so obvious. Having grown up in the
previous iteration of the rural American south, I know that what
*really* smarted about Darwin, down there, was the logical implication
that blacks and whites are descended from a common ancestor. Butt-ugly,
but there it is. That was the first objection to evolutionary theory
that I ever heard, and it was a very common one, in fact the most
common. That it was counter to Genesis seemed merely convenient, in the
face of an anthropoid grand-uncle in the woodpile.

Like the man says: Look at those cavemen go.

Jesus is a language people use to talk about things that are difficult to say out loud. Things we certainly don’t want to find ourselves saying…

One other thing: how much of the mo behind the newest FCC – broadcast scandal comes of the fact that we’ve got a white woman here (as nude as any actress in a shampoo comercial) throwing herself at a big black football star. At this craziness simply a reprise of the Superbowl breast-incident, which involved a white male and a black female… Darwinism at its worst…
