Judgement Day

According to Agape Press, that ever reliable fount of news from a Christian source, Kansas state school board member Connie Morris has undergone a period of deep introspection following her loss to Sally Cauble in the Republican primary.

After Connie's dark night of the soul, she's concluded that the "lying liberal media" is responsible for her defeat.
"The media assassinated me," Morris contends. "They did everything they could to ruin my character, my reputation. I wish I could go through all the stories to tell you how they were either blatant lies or gross misinterpretations of the facts," she says.
(In this sense, all the stories Morris wishes she could tell are much like the evidence for intelligent design. Often alluded to, but never enumerated.)

It wasn't just the media, either. Opponents of Kansas' recently enacted science standards worked, she says, to derail her campaign.

"We just had a lot coming against us," explains Morris, including "a lot of well-funded, loud, obnoxious, rude people who have no ethics and morals, and they don't bat an eye at lying and manipulating the truth."

Moreover, says Morris, liberal opportunists don't mind "slandering people and harming their families and their reputation and their business and their communities and their state. It's a shame," she adds. "It's a shame, and I feel bad for them when they face God on Judgment Day."
Although four born-again Christians remain on the State Board of Education, Morris believes the newly empowered liberal majority will waste no time adopting new science standards. In January, she says, when the new members are sworn in, the Board will likely rescind the existing standards and adopt new ones that "let government schools teach children that we are no more than chaotic, random mutants."
Although Morris undoubtedly numbers Red State Rabble among the loud, obnoxious, rude people who have no ethics and morals, and who don't bat an eye at lying and manipulating the truth, we'd like to take a moment to thank her for her public service. After all, without sweet, sweet Connie, RSR would not exist.
