Oh, the usual -- a religious-right documentary blaming Charles Darwin for the Holocaust:

Author and Christian broadcaster Dr. D. James Kennedy connects the dots between Charles Darwin and Adolf Hitler in Darwin's Deadly Legacy, a groundbreaking inquiry into Darwin's chilling social impact. The new television documentary airs nationwide on August 26 and 27 on The Coral Ridge Hour. For station listings, go to www.coralridge.org/darwin.

The program features 14 scholars, scientists, and authors who outline the grim consequences of Darwin's theory of evolution and show how his theory fueled Hitler's ovens.

"To put it simply, no Darwin, no Hitler," said Dr. Kennedy, the host of
Darwin's Deadly Legacy. "Hitler tried to speed up evolution, to help it along, and millions suffered and died in unspeakable ways because of it." ...

Complete with expert testimony!

Ann Coulter, a bestselling author and popular conservative columnist, said Hitler "was applying Darwinism. He thought the Aryans were the fittest and he was just hurrying natural selection along." ...

More from Coulter:

I'll let the scientists decide what should be taught in science class, but it seems to me the one thing that shouldn't be taught in science class is a crack pot nineteenth century mystery religion … [public schools are] the left's madrassas and they propagandize to the children six hours a day, 12 years of the child life.

See the clip in which Coulter says this at this post from People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch blog (which I'm adding to the blogroll).


Also from Right Wing Watch, I learn that Alan Keyes appeared in the Limbaugh brothers' hometown, Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and predicted that if embryonic stem-cell research isn't banned, it will lead to the breeding of slave clones:

And despite wording in Amendment 2 imposing harsh criminal penalties on anyone attempting to create a living human clone using the stem-cell research techniques, Keyes raised the possibility of an industrial effort to produce clones.

The result, he said, would be "new legions of humans to be enslaved and brutalized."

My apartment desperately needs painting -- oh, if only...

(I'm kidding, Alan!)
