A gay state of mind

Ted Haggard is all better now. Honest.

I don’t know, people wouldn’t make such a big deal about it if he hadn’t been so adamant in the first place. There's a good Jesus Camp clip of Pastor Ted: someone that flippantly self-righteous, you just know it's a recipe for disaster.

So, it turns out it was all in his mind. Which brings me to Nobel prize-winning neuroscientist Santiago Ramón y Cajal, who was quoted here as saying:
As long as our brain is a mystery, the universe, the reflection of the structure of the brain, will also be a mystery.

It’s a fabulous thought. I think I'd take out the ‘as long as’ - it’s a mystery forever, full stop.

Say, if one can cure homosexuality then maybe one can also cure evangeluality...there might be weekend courses available to help people get it all sorted out. "I used to believe in God the almightly and his half-vulcan son ruling the universe, but I'm over that now. Pass the jack daniels."

Good thinking - Jack Daniels could cause just about any known belief system to topple. People who succumb to it... well actually most of them went on to become great American writers.

You might be on to something major here.
