Default Re: Science Saturday: Confronting the Right Wing

I agree with bkjazfan to some extent. Although I love to listen to John and George I do take umbrage at their incessant, sometimes vitriolic, hatred of religion. I can understand one being put off by proselytising, but to be against religion in any form, which they both frequently admit, seems to me to be woefully wrong minded.

Patriotism, like any of the isms, can be taken to extremes. There is a fine line between patriotism, nationalism, and racism; but that doesn’t mean that it’s bad to wear a flag pin, or to be proud of America’s positive contributions to the world community. I attribute John Horgan’s cynical view of patriotism to the fact that he is, in part, a “60’s throw back”…, or in other words a geriatric hippie.
