and the rest of the world laughed

Do you know how I know? When evangelical Christians glob on to an old testament reference to the number 35 and somehow come away with a Holy highway, is there need for further proof?  This kind of "yuck yuck, I checked by brain in at the church door" crap can only happen here in America. Read it and weep.

A devout group of evangelical Christians in the Midwest are flocking to help purify a spot they believe the Bible has ordained as holy ground -- and it happens to be 1,500 miles of interstate asphalt.

Why the location?

According to CNN, the small contingent of churchgoers believe that Interstate 35, a sprawling highway running from Texas to Minnesota, is specifically mentioned in the Book of Isaiah, chapter 35.

Devout? more like demented.

Have you checked out the segment from Pat Robertson's show about this? It's good for a few laughs.

Doesn't "devout" pretty much mean "demented" anyway? Whenever I hear someone referred to as "a devout Christian," I can't help forming a fairly vivid impression of the person that isn't particularly positive.

Haha yeah that's quite a story.

Great job pointing that out I always enjoy evidence of Christian foolishness.

How in the hell could someone make such an unwarranted, unhelpful, and utterly stupid assumption like that?
