In The "Why Does Wal-Mart - And Conservatives - Hate Children So?" Department

Man, here are two pieces of information that 1) defy evolutionary progress and 2) make me wish shopping at Wal-Mart would cause infertility for the sake of humanity. Both provided by links at The Huffington Post.

First up, there's WorldNetDaily's Jim Kurtz who insists that giving children soy products (a/k/a "devil food") will turn them into raging homosexuals. [Really? Is this what happened to Richard Simmons, Ken Mehlman, the Rev. Ted Haggard, Don Imus, Bill Bennett, Rush Limbaugh, and Jerry Falwell?]

Next, there is something even more... uh... delightful [shudder]. Wal-Mart is selling a video game where the way to win is to convert or kill those who are non-Christian. It's reprehensible enough that intelligent Christian groups are joining progressives and liberals in calling for this game to be removed from shelves this holiday season. [me: I'm not a big believer in forcing products off the market by any mechanism other than consumers refusing to buy it because it's a bad idea and a bad message.]

The Campaign to Defend the Constitution and the Christian Alliance for Progress, two online political groups, plan to demand today that Wal-Mart dump Left Behind: Eternal Forces, a PC game inspired by a series of Christian novels that are hugely popular, especially with teens.
